Post Graduate Studies in
Clinical Nutrition (PGSCN)
Post Graduate Studies in Clinical Nutrition™, and other
credentialing and continuing education programs are intended as
advanced training for physicians and other health care
professionals. These courses alone do not confer upon an
unlicensed practitioner the legal authority to implement the
information in these courses upon patients or clients. Some of
the information in these courses may be beyond the scope of a
private practice CCN who is not licensed as, or supervised by a
physician, or other appropriately licensed practitioner. Before
utilizing the information or techniques presented in these courses
on patients or clients, an unlicensed practitioner, or a
practitioner with a restrictive license (such as a pharmacist,
chiropractor, nurse or dietician) should check with the relevant
practice acts in his/her state to ensure that the practitioner’s
use of the modalities, therapies or techniques set forth in these
courses is consistent with state law.
