Benefits of Preceptorship
Give back to the next generation of nutrition specialists by offering students your knowledge and expertise. Along with helping future nutritionists, our preceptors will have access to continuing education opportunities through our Partners in Nutrition Education program.
Our CE programs are offered to support the continuing education of Logan University’s MSAND preceptors and other partners. These cutting-edge self-study courses are approved for continuing education through the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) and are in the category of “Self-Study”. Self-Study offerings are self-paced educational programs taught by the Logan world class MSNHP (Master of Science in Nutrition and Human Performance) and MSAND faculty and other experts in unique areas of Dietetics. The CE offerings are diverse and support the integration of evidence-based, with cutting-edge areas of nutrition. Each CE program will offer CE credit, and the program will remain active for 3 years from their original publication. The program is offered free of charge to our preceptors and other partners.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
The Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) has added a requirement in the 2022 standards for all nutrition preceptors and educators to be trained on “strategies to recognize and monitor biases in self and others and reduce instances of microaggressions and discrimination.” (Required Element 5.3.C) Training 1 and Training 2 are recommended for preceptors. You can find these trainings on the Partners in Nutrition Education CPEU page. Or you can go straight to ACEND for the trainings.
