Nutrition with Distance Learning Internship, MS

Keiser University

This program is available in the following Florida campuses:

Graduate School

The Keiser University Graduate Master of Science in Nutrition with Distance Learning Internship (KU-MS/DI) combined program with a concentration area of Community Nutrition is a rigorous and fast paced program designed to allow interns to complete their  supervised practice requirements in their geographic area. Interns will be able to use local sites and preceptors to complete their rotations. Prospective interns are required to obtain agreements with qualified preceptors in the areas of Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT), food service systems/dietetic management and community nutrition. Interns will need to set-up site rotations prior to applying to the internship. Rotations maybe completed in more than one site location. The success of the program and the intern’s rotation is the dedication of the preceptors to the interns learning process. Sites and preceptors are subject to the approval of KU-MS/DI.

The DI program is approved to take up to 48 interns annually, 24 in the fall semester and 24 in the spring semester.  Interns  will be required to complete additional didactic modules prior to attending the 5-Day Orientation  program located at the Fort Lauderdale campus. The 5-Day Orientation session is scheduled during the first week of the starting semester.  The orientation session will be an intensive review session in clinical nutrition, community nutrition, and food service systems/dietetic management.

Interns will communicate with the program director and/or program coordinator weekly throughout the supervised practice. Mid-point and final evaluations will serve to measure to the intern’s progress during the rotations. The preceptor will be providing feedback on a regular basis to help guide the intern’s progress.

The combined KU-MS/DI program is preparing dietetic professionals for the diverse and challenging field of nutrition and dietetic practice. Interns must complete both the masters and distance learning internship to receive the verification statement allowing eligibility to sit the national registration examination.

Full acceptance into the Master of Science in Nutrition with Distance Learning Internship will require the student meeting academic requirements, distance learning internship requirements, and preceptor and site  appropriateness requirements to provide the intern the learning experiences as set forth by the Accreditation Council on Education for Nutrition and Dietetics entry-level practice as a registered dietitian.  Affiliation agreements must be in place prior to the start of the supervised practice.

Mrs. Percy and Mr. Williams believed in me. They were more than instructors, they tried to get to know you as a person and tried to understand your goals so they could push you towards them. And Mrs. Crawford from student services helped me find a job before I even graduated. She was dedicated to my overall success.

Going to Keiser University was one of the greatest experiences in my life. All of my deans, professors, and staff made me feel that I was a part of something very special, and I am. I would recommend for anyone to get their education at Keiser University.

Belinda Haney

The two instructors that have impacted my life are Mr. Williams and Mrs. Percy. Both of them believed in my ability to become a great graphic designer, regardless of how I felt about my skills. I appreciate their motivation to get me to where I am today.

Justin Pugh

Beyond the curriculum of the courses, the lessons the instructors have taught me have paid dividends in my real work experiences. How to respond to criticisms, project and time management, interview skills, the list goes on and on. At the end of the day, they not only showed me how to design, but they taught me how to be a professional.

Ryan Bushey

If not for my education at Keiser I probably would not be where I am today, in both life and career. It is because of going to Keiser and the instructors I had that I joined a club started by Mr. Williams, The Lakeland Shooters Photography Group, which allowed me to venture into an amazing and very creative field that I use to enhance all aspects of my life.

Anthony Sassano

The Design program at Keiser University was filled with real world learning and hands on instruction… Based on the portfolio I created while a student at Keiser University, I landed a job in Graphic Design for a major online retailer immediately after graduation.

Ty Fitzgerald

The year and a half I spent in the program better prepared me for attaining a job in the field…As a hands-on learner, the project-centered teaching was perfect for me.

Carlos Ramirez Flores

Keiser University’s MBA program has renewed my mind, changed the way I think, and given me a new sense of purpose.  The professors transformed my attitude and behavior, gave me the self-confidence I was lacking, and restored my energy.

Connie Sue Centrella

It has been great attending and graduating from Keiser University.  Because of the small class sizes, I was able to build good relationships with classmates and professors.  The PA professors care very much about the progress and success of the students and have been great advisors every step of the way through the program.

Annelise Merriner, PA-C

Attending Keiser University and getting my degree was the best decision I have ever made.  The small class sizes and personalized attention helped me get my degree quickly.  The hands-on experience and the education landed me a job at a neighboring law firm.

Dedrick Saxon

I chose Keiser because it had everything—small classes, caring professors, hands-on learning, and counselors that are really there for you.  I feel like I’m part of a family here, not just a number.

Natalie Dou

After being denied for several promotions at my current employer, I decided that I needed to further my education.  Since graduating from Keiser with my bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, I have been promoted and I am able to obtain positions that weren’t available to me before.

Laurie Williams

Keiser helped change my life by getting my education at the right school! I had been going to another school before, I dropped out because I felt that I was not getting enough information. When I found out about Keiser, I was pleased because the instructors were great.

Nadege Dor

My decision to attend Keiser University has been one of the best decisions I’ve made. I chose to enroll in the Information Technology program… The one-class-a-month pace helped incredibly with my self-discipline.

Marla Hadley

The BA for Business Administration at Keiser has to be one of the best in the nation. Keiser takes the basics that are taught at the Associates level and uses them to strengthen your skills and knowledge.

I found that Keiser University’s Nuclear Medicine program of advanced studies and small class size was a perfect fit. I never came across a faculty member who wasn’t truly interested.
