AN ACT to amend the education law,  in  relation  to  the  licensure  of
  dietitians and nutritionists

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Legislative findings and declaration of purpose. The legis-
lature finds that the application of scientific  knowledge  relating  to
nutrition  is  important  in effective care, treatment and prevention of
disease or trauma and in the attainment and maintenance of  health,  and
acknowledges  that the rendering and communication of sound dietetic and
nutrition services in hospitals, nursing homes, extended care and  ambu-
latory  care  settings,  school  districts,  health departments, private
practice and consultation, and in other settings  requires  trained  and
competent professionals. The legislature further finds that it is neces-
sary  in  the  provision  of  medical nutrition therapy for such profes-
sionals to be licensed under article 157 of the education law to  ensure
quality  care  through a standardized nutrition care process, consisting
of a nutrition assessment, nutrition diagnosis,  nutrition  intervention
and  the  monitoring  and evaluation of outcomes directly related to the
nutrition care process. Therefore, it  is  hereby  declared  to  be  the
purpose  of  this  act to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the
public by providing for the licensure and regulation of  the  activities
of persons engaged in the practice of dietetics and nutrition.
  S 2. Section 8000 of the education law, as added by chapter 635 of the
laws of 1991, is amended to read as follows:
  S 8000. Introduction.    This article applies to the use of the titles
["certified   dietitian"   and   "certified   nutritionist"]   "LICENSED
DIETITIAN/NUTRITIONIST"  OR  "LDN"  AND  THE  PRACTICE  OF DIETETICS AND
NUTRITION.  The general provision for all professions contained in arti-
cle one hundred thirty of this title shall apply to this article.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
