Certification Partnership with National Board of Nutrition Support Certification
NOVA has entered into a partnership with the National Board of Nutrition Support Certification (NBNSC). NOVA members will receive the reduced exam fee of $365. NOVA members who apply will be asked to provide a copy of their current NOVA membership card so that NBNSC may verify membership in NOVA.
NBNSC administers the CNSC certification program to nutrition support providers. Nutrition support is a sophisticated and specialized practice that requires the expertise and knowledge of multiple health care professionals including nurses, physicians, dieticians, pharmacists and physician assistants. Through its credentialing program, NBNSC determines the body of knowledge needed to have an understanding of nutrition support, develops a fair and valid means to test applicants, and promotes the credential to other health care professions and organizations, such as NOVA. NBNSC has certified more than 4,200 nutrition support professionals.
