  • Approval of Non-PNDS CNE Credits:
    • PNDS RDN committee assigns credit hours of each nutrition related activity conducted on PNDS platform and also to non-pnds related activities.
    • For non PNDS activities all RDs must submit the details of the activity(e.g duration /content/facilitator) with proof of participation at at-least two weeks before the program  in order to assign credit hours to that activity. For non PNDS activities the best approach would be to get credits assigned prior to attending the activity.
