15-Month Online Nutrition Consultant Program from your location!

The Nutrition Consultant program provides students with in-depth knowledge of whole-foods nutrition as it contributes to the prevention of illness and the promotion of optimal health.

Upon completion of the program, graduates are prepared to work as nutrition professionals and provide expert recommendations for diet, targeted nutrients, and lifestyle habits that support their clients in slowing the progression of chronic illness and attaining optimal health. Students are trained to understand social patterns of health inequities and account for their clients’ unique circumstances and needs in terms of access, support, and available resources. Students gain this expertise through the following:

  • our science-based nutrition curriculum, which considers disparities in food access and health care that underlie health inequities in different populations
  • practical, hands-on application of nutrition education, health coaching, and nutritional consulting with clients
  • our business curriculum, uniquely tailored for the nutrition consultant

Based out of NHI Emeryville in Northern California, in the heart of the SF East Bay Area, near Berkeley, CA, the program supports different learning styles and is designed with modern education technology, developed to maximize information retention and real-life application. Students regularly connect with peers and faculty through online discussion groups, live video classes, and one-on-one office hours with instructors.
