Texas

Texas is a Title Protection State. The Texas dietitians program licenses and regulates dietitians and requires a license to use the titles “Licensed Dietitian” and “Provisionally Licensed Dietitian” and “Registered Dietitian.”

EXEMPTIONS:

The state of Texas protects titles; however, the law does not prevent holistic nutrition professionals from practicing within their scope of practice.
