What is the Compact?

The Council of State Governments (CSG) is partnering with the Department of Defense (DoD) and The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND) to support the mobility of licensed dietitians through the development of a new interstate compact. This additional licensing pathway will facilitate multistate practice among member states and reduce the barriers to license portability.


Where Can You Learn More?

The Council of State Governments has a website that includes updates, F&Qs, a Fact Sheet, and more.  Also, this 40-minute YouTube video provides an overview and helpful information.
