CSNN Distance Education


I completed the CSNN distance education program and had an amazing experience with it. I was working a full time job and while completing the program so the freedom of a time line given by CSNN was ideal. The staff was great to interact with when I had a question regarding the program or a specific course. I found that all courses within the program were designed well and applicable to what I want to achieve with the certification upon graduating. I would highly recommend this program to anyone hoping to get into the Holistic Nutrition world!

I did 2 years of a BSc in Nutrition before finding CSNN. I realized quickly holistic health aligned more with my values as a Nutritionist. The online platform was convenient for me, as I also work full-time and could study at my own pace. The program challenged me to re-assess my views on nutrition and wellness with thought-provoking courses and case studies. I felt supported by the instructors and staff who encouraged me to finish when I was worried I would not meet my final deadline. I am thankful for finishing the program and also for realizing that there is so much more I want to learn within the field in order to help people achieve optimal health to the best of my ability.

I originally started at CSNN to help support and develop my own health journey and left feeling more passionate and empowered to help educate others about their health and well-being . CSNN taught me to appreciate the connection between our mind, body and spirit when it comes to the bigger picture of our health and understand that nutrition is not a one size fits all practice. The distance education platform worked really well with my daily schedule. It was flexible (especially while navigating a pandemic ) and the resources to help you feel successful were amazing! Thank you for a wonderful experience!

I was stoked to have the opportunity to attend CSNN even though I live in a small community as the online schooling made it practical! Just like many other students I came from a place of trying to figure out my personal health struggles, but then became fascinated with truly understanding what is going on within our whole being and how the digestion system is really the root of wellbeing. I came ignorant, overwhelmed, and discouraged but I left with confident and energy to share with passion this way of vibrant healthy living.

CSNN was a great program. I was reluctant over the years to reach out to teachers but when I finally did I was beyond happy with the feedback and guidance. They are very kind and helpful! CSNN has given me an opportunity to utilize my passion and hopefully drive my career!

Hi, my name is Eva, I am 64 years old and graduated from CSNN Distance Education in May, 2021. I worked as a Registered Medical X-Ray Technologist until I had an acute inhalation injury to construction dust and mould at work, which made me very sick. Because the medical doctors were unable to help me “to survive mould”, I started my own research how to recover. In doing so, I thought I might as well get a certificate for all that I learned. That is how I found CSNN. In the program, especially in Nutritional Pathology, there was all the information about the conditions I had and nutritional support/detoxification needed. I thought the doctors, who claim that they had not learned these things at the university, should take the CSNN program. The program was the biggest help in my seven years journey of self-recovery. The program instructors were awesome, especially for getting ready for the finals. I got lots of encouragement and support. I worked in the medical profession for 45 years and this program was the “integrative” part of my training. Whether you want to help yourself or want to help others, this is a great program. Health and wellness will always be in style!

I graduated from CSNN Distance Education in June of 2021. I’ve been very interested in nutrition for over 50 years and wanted to finally get professional training to give credibility and structure to my lifelong passion. I looked for years to find a highly respected program that would provide intensive training with a wide spectrum of courses and subjects pertaining to the field of nutrition. I finally settled on the CSNN program knowing it would bring me the in depth value and experience I was looking for. The training was fun, thought provoking, challenging and at times a lot of work, but thoroughly worth it! I now feel well prepared to move forward in my nutritionally based career with pride and confidence. So glad I chose CSNN!

Overall I found the course to be challenging yet worthwhile. It was hard to balance life and completing the course and it took me an extra year to finish. Especially with the year we all just went through. It would have been nice to finish earlier but going into a classroom would not have worked well for me. I have struggled with severe ADHD my entire life and have never done well in a classroom environment so the online aspect was better suited to my needs. I found that some of the material clashed with my own understanding of human nutrition but I was able to keep an open mind and found a balance between the course material and my own research and overall it has made me a much more balanced nutritional professional and this is what we should all strive to do. The staff at CSNN where always there to speak to me when I had conflicts and they worked with me to help me thought the course even when things were rough. They assured me that despite the one slant of the course material that I was free to express my own style so long as I could back up my work with evidence and I did and it was not held against me. That was very refreshing. Overall I would say that anyone wanting to get some real credentials in the nutrition world would be well suited to go this route. It has been a valuable resource for me and my clients.

I have enjoyed studying natural nutrition with CSNN and have learned so much. It has added so much value to my life and to my professional like as a yoga teacher. I look forward to being able to help clients with nutritional help as well.

Enrolling in the CSNN Natural Nutrition Program was the best decision I could have made! The courses were easy to navigate using the online portal, the content was informative and well structured. I learnt more than I could have imagined in the past year. I am so excited I am now able to share my knowledge with my friends, family and future clients and use these practices in my every day to day life.

CSNN has changed the way I look at health and nutrition, it is about so much more than just food. After completing the program I have a better understanding of how everything within the body is interconnected and also how other factors in our lives impact our health. I really enjoyed the distance education program because I was able to learn from home on my own time. The instructors were always very helpful and quick to answer any questions I had. The webinars were extremely useful to have alongside all the course materials. I am very grateful for my experience with CSNN.

After struggling with health issues, I began studying with CSNN to develop a better understanding of how nutrition could impact my own health and wellbeing and that of my family. After completing the Natural Nutrition Program, I am so grateful for the knowledge I have gained. I can confidently say that I feel better than ever before and was able to identify the root cause of my health problems and address them through nutrition and lifestyle changes. Now that I am a Registered Holistic Nutrition professional, I am excited to be able to offer the same support to others. I love how flexible the Distance Education program is; it allowed me to continue working fulltime while studying at my own pace. Despite not being in a classroom, I still felt supported by the school and its instructors. I wholeheartedly recommend the Natural Nutrition Program to anyone who is interested in a holistic approach to health.

Please Share your Experience at CSNN:: The distance education program offered through CSNN gave so much flexibility which matched perfectly for my current lifestyle. I started the program optimistic and excited – the faculty only validated those feelings as they were reachable, kind, knowledgeable and understanding. The courses offered were interesting and valuable – I truly felt that I was gaining so much creditable and useful information & knowledge. I enjoyed being able to work at my own pace but also having certain deadlines and suggested time frames to keep me on track. Overall, I felt that the distance education program was well thought out and offered a great delivery. The addition of this holistic nutrition program to my life & career has only been positive! Thank you CSNN!

I would always recommend in class schooling where possible as it allows for you to interact with your peers and faculty more easily. Having said that, the distance education / online course offers a lot of flexibility which I required with my lifestyle. The faculty were very kind, understanding and knowledgeable. They were reasonably fast responding to direct messages. To explain how I ended up taking Holistic Nutrition goes back many years. I first found out about it when an ex-partner of mine took the course and I helped her study for all her tests, and in doing so, learned a lot. It wasn’t until a few years later when my health was sub-par that I remembered the course spoke about plant based diets and decided to give that a chance. It changed my life. At 32, i was the healthiest i had ever been in my life. Even my seasonal and pet allergies disappeared. I am still a plant based person to this day. It wasn’t until family members and friends started falling ill to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer that i decided i didn’t know enough about nutrition to make an impact in those around me. At that point i remembered the this school and decided to take the chance. I am very glad that i did. There is still so much for me to learn, but this has given me the start i needed, and the support i will still need in the future.

This program has been amazing! Every course was so interesting, and i’ve learned so much. I feel that I have so much knowledge to share about nutrition, and I can’t wait to get started! The distance program has been great for this busy mom of two kids. I could choose to work on the program when I had time and it’s been a great experience overall!

CSNN changed my life for the better hands down! I contemplated for way too long whether or not to follow my passion for health and wellness and coming across CSNN changed that all for me. The ability to study online or at one of their campuses makes it accessible to everyone to achieve their goals! The accessibility of the professors, organization of content and formatting makes this course so enjoyable. If you have been thinking about taking this step, just do it and don’t look back. I promise you it will be for the better! I cannot wait to use this step and change my life and others for the better.

CSNN has been an amazing experience. The program is structured in very efficient way allowing the students to go through every single topic with the right steps and appropriate tempo for learning. The team has been always such a great support every time when I needed them. In the beginning I was concerned about the time zone difference and the distance between us but once I started the program I realized that it is just designed to work well and I was not feeling the actual thousand miles physical distance between us. The additional seminars have always been so interesting and educational – each time dedicated to a very important and hot topic issue, giving another opportunity for the students to dive deeper in the area. I came for knowledge and I am extremely grateful and happy from the knowledge and training I have received at CSNN.

I would recommend CSNN to anyone looking to begin a career in this field.

CSNN Distance Ed is an amazing program! I started it not knowing what I truly wanted out of it but I received so much more, I found my passion and my calling to teach and empower people to take back their health the holistic way. CSNN provided support throughout and allowed you to go at your own pace but still had deadlines to encourage you through. They provide numerous webinars for distant students that don?t have the ?in class? experience and allow them to connect with other students through the education system. I highly recommend this program!

I have had the pleasure of experiencing both distance education and in class learning at CSNN Moncton where I began my studies in 2017. I had to move after the first semester but was easily transferred to the distance education program. At first, I missed the structure and socialization, however once I found a routine that worked for me I was hooked on distance education. CSNN gives you ample time to finish all the graduation requirements, and responds to inquires/ provides feedback on assignments promptly. CSNN has not only given me a new wealth of knowledge but has given me confidence in myself to purse my dreams. I am looking forward to upgrading my certifications with other programs and workshops they offer.

I am so glad I took the opportunity to register for the Natural Nutrition program at CSNN. Their Distance Education program allowed me the flexibility to still work and carry out a busy life, and even though it was distant, it sure did not feel like it. My teachers were always one message away, and my classmates within the Facebook group were always so helpful when I needed extra support. The content involved in this program is so informative and really sets you up to be able to help and heal others, as this is the reason many of us are compelled to holistic nutrition to begin with. I can whole-heartedly say that I am so glad I took this program, and would recommend it to anyone wishing to venture down the path of health and wellness. Thank you CSNN for providing me with the tools I need to share my knowledge with others, so they can heal themselves from the inside out.

After many years of trying to figure out what I really wanted, I decided to finally follow my passion to go back to school and become a holistic nutritionist. The team and staff through the online learning portal have always been really great, always there to answer all my questions, everyone is very knowledgeble and professional. This was one of the best experiences and I am extremely happy that I decided to attend CSNN. I was able to learn at my own pace (having started this while I was on maternity leave), and I am very grateful for this experience. I highly recommend this school to anyone wanting to learn more about natural nutrition!

I recently graduated from the CSNN online program after a two year period of study. Courses were well organized and exams allowed time to read, absorb, and write about the material. My instructors were knowledgeable and quick to respond if I had questions or concerns. In addition, online videos, seminars, and forums provided a place to connect with others and share information. I would highly recommend Distance Education to anyone interested in CSNN. Natural nutrition has most definitely become an overall positive force in my life.

Thanks to CSNN I have received profession of my dream! I was always fond of nutrition but now my hobby has turned into my profession. My clients trust me as I am a graduate of CSNN. And not only clients – I have recently recieved an invitation to read lectures in a state University about current trends in nutrition and to speak at a conference about ecology in nutrition. I am sure that my decision to study in CSNN was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

I was working at a corporate law firm and had gotten diagnosed with endometriosis. I was given limited options to address my debilitating symptoms and that’s when I turned to nutrition. I knew a little bit but not enough to help my situation so I began researching nutrition schools because I wanted to really get to the root of my health concerns. CSNN came highly recommended by a good friend so I decided to take the online 2-year diploma program. At first I was worried about studying remotely but CSNN sends you everything you need. They give you an outline of how long you should spend on each module and I followed this exactly as instructed and I ended up graduating a few months before my 2-year term was up. Each module is dense with information and CSNN did not fall short in any subject. I have taken many other courses in the past and I have to say that CSNN surpasses all of them in high-quality education. Although I studied remotely, CSNN was always there to answer my questions and concerns. I couldn’t have asked for a better support system. I am happy to say that based on what I learned at CSNN I was able to reduce my endometriosis flare-ups significantly and feel confident to take what I have learned over the past 22 months and help others achieve optimal health. I feel very equipped to begin taking clients due to all of the practice case studies that I experienced through this program. I worked hard and dedicated myself to my studies and am happy to say that during my journey with CSNN I have never felt better about my new holistic path in life. I would highly recommend this program!

The program at CSNN provided me with the knowledge and skills required to begin my journey into becoming at health and wellness professional. I began the course with a cursory understanding of ‘healthy eating’ and finished the course with a much deeper understanding of how nutrients impact different body systems and how this can be applied to improving an individuals health. I’m excited to continue my learning journey in the health and wellness space, and am thankful for the solid foundation provided by the CSNN Distance Education courses.

Completing the CSNN natural nutrition program was the BEST decision I could have made for me and my family. I was four months into my mat leave, and decided I wanted a change. Almost a decade in the healthcare sector was wonderful, but I still felt like I needed to do more. I started the course thinking I knew all there was to nutrition- boy was I wrong! Each day as my children napped I got to open my mind more and more to the wonderful world I could not wait to be a part of. The program made it so easy for me to study whenever I had a spare chance. I was able to successfully complete the program in just over a year and will recommend the program to anyone interested in expanding their knowledge of holistic nutrition.

Great curriculum covering diverse topics from agriculture to various health needs depending upon different phases of human life. The academic advisors were very responsive and helpful. The topics were relevant to helping people balance their diet with focus on psycho-spiritual and emotional well-being to provide a holistic view on lifestyle changes. I am much more aware of the relationship between our earth, our food, digestive system, microbiome and our overall health. The saying “You are a Microcosm of the Macrocosm” rings true as we are all interconnected. I love that the course is based on the premise that the body can heal if you give it what it needs, and remove what is getting in its way. Lower toxicity, increase nutrition to reduce deficiencies. Let food by thy medicine!

It was a great experience with CSNN. In the year 1992 I did my master’s in nutrition in India. First time I studied online (distance learning). This refreshed my knowledge as well as learnt lot. This also assisted me to enter in new world with my laptop & learning computer skills. CSNN staff is extremely helpful. Whenever I get needed guidance, I received immediate and precise responses. I highly recommend students, that you all are in the right place! Journey of this course will change your life. You will be more focused towards better lifestyle and able to encourage others. I’m excited to start my own consulting, I can see that people already started to approach as well encouraging. Thank you so much CSNN and Staff!
