What are the requirements for supervision of persons claiming exemption from licensure such as dietetic technicians registered or certified dietary managers?

Answer:

These persons must be under the direct supervision of a licensed dietitian/nutritionist or licensed nutritionist in a manner which protects the public.  The licensee providing the supervision need not be on site at all times, but the licensee is responsible for the actions taken by the unlicensed/exempt persons, and must be available for consultation and to render assistance (see 21 NCAC 17 .0401).

For further guidance on levels of supervision, please refer to the NCBDN’s Guideline C.
