Our programs combine the latest scientific research with ageless truths practiced by traditional societies. If you join us, you will study nutrition from many different perspectives. Among these are both common threads and points of difference.
That is as it should be.
Nutrition as a science is relatively new and some of its findings are controversial. The more viewpoints to which you are exposed, the more you will be able to see a larger, more complete picture. You will also be better equipped to assess the merits of new ideas you come across than if your studies had been only from a single perspective.
When you study with us, you will learn how to apply science and evidence-based principles to everyday health problems.
Whether you wish to become a nutritional consultant practitioner, to update your present nutritional skills, to improve your own health and that of your family and friends, or simply to learn for its own enjoyment, we can offer you an exceptional learning experience.
Choosing a Program: The EIN curriculum consists of an Introductory Program, a Practitioner Diploma Program, an Accelerated Program for Health Professionals, a Post-Graduate Mentorship Program and Continuing Education Programs.
If you are simply interested in your own health and the health of your family, then the Introductory Program may be for you. If you want to turn your interest into a career, then the Practitioner Diploma Program is for you.
The Accelerated Program for Health Professionals is for those that are currently practitioners. You will receive advanced standing credit for university or post-secondary courses that meet or exceed EIN standards. Once approved, a custom program will be created.
Wherever you decide to start, we have made it easy for you to continue to higher levels. Individual subjects have been organized into modules according to logical groupings and prerequisites. Dividing the curriculum into modules allows you to progress one step at a time, with meaningful guideposts along the way. It also gives you flexibility in setting your own goals. You might, for example, start with the Introductory Program before deciding to continue on to the Practitioner Diploma Program, to be eligible for professional designation with the CANNP, the IONC, or the NANP but not required. You can decide to go the whole distance right from the start or to ease into it one step at a time.
