Our unique PGSCN online program offers students around the world a way to pass their certifications. We are available to assist with your initial test and CCN recertification.

Participating in the PGSCN online program

CNCB 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. Core academic requirements for PGSCN & CCN examination approval include the following:
