The flexibility of the distance learning format makes the NASN ideal for candidates who do not live close to the association’s established locations. By being able to arrange your own study schedule, you will be able to become licensed sooner, entering into your sports nutrition practice at your own pace.
In your candidate package you will find the official NASN Board exam preparation guide. Your NASN representative may also include other informational books to help you prepare for your exam. The Board Exam will be proctored at a location near you. You will have two hours to complete the exam without references or assistance. You must select a proctor and schedule your exam within six months of receiving your package.
"Let me tell you I'm very satisfied with the [Primary Sports Nutritionist Distance Learning] Course. Obviously it was easier for me because of my medical degree, but it gave me a completely different approach and view of nutrition not only for athletes, but for the general population. I'll be using what I've learned with my patients. I'll be sending you the name and address of my proctor as soon as possible."
Dr. Juan Alvarez Dunzelmann, MD, Venezuela
