Here are a couple tips for members when completing their Licensure renewal form (or initial application):

Please Print Legibly – some problems faced by the Licensure Board relate to the inability to read a person’s handwriting.

  1. Read the instructions on the form carefully.  Fill out the application completely.
  2. Be sure that the credits you have earned are within the 2 year window.
  3. Send in your renewal form as soon as you have completed the credits required – you do not have to wait until you receive notification from the Licensure Board that your license is about to expire.  If questions arise, there will be time to answer them before your license expires.
  4. Be very specific in describing the continuing education that you are submitting.  The NH Licensure Board follows guidelines similar to CDR guidelines. If you suspect that one or more of your credits may be questioned, include a detailed explanation of the event and/or the certificate of completion. 

PLEASE NOTE:  The State of New Hampshire has mandated change to all licensing boards. Beginning June 2017, all dietitian licenses will be on the same two year cycle (i.e. license renewals due on June 30th). For licenses that renewed beginning June 1, 2015 through December 1, 2015 and were charged a prorated fee, the licenses will expire on June 30, 2017 and will be required to provide proof of 15 credit hours of Continuing Professional Education (CPEs). Those licenses that renewed between January 2016 and May 2016 and were charged a prorated fee will be responsible for 10 CPEs and their license will expire on June 30th, 2017 also.
