Intensive Natural Nutrition Diploma Program

30 week accelerated program starting November 16, 2020

The Canadian School of Natural Nutrition Vancouver Island (with classroom and virtual classroom formats in Victoria and Nanaimo) is pleased to provide our new Intensive Natural Nutrition Diploma Program starting in November 16, 2020.

How does it differ from the Natural Nutrition Program?

  • The Program is delivered in an accelerated format in only 30 weeks
  • This Intensive program has an additional Clinical Studies Course offered in the classroom with more than 20 hours per week that complements the original Natural Nutrition Program.
  • Eligible students may be able to apply for StudentAidBC

All other curriculum hours, corequisites, and culinary program hours are the same as the original Natural Nutrition Program. Both programs provide a strong foundation for a career in the holistic nutrition industry.

Is the Intensive Program Right For You?

The Intensive Program could be right for you if:

  • You are serious about becoming a practitioner and opening your own practice
  • You feel you require extra support and guidance; you may not have a science or healthcare background and think you would benefit from these extra clinical hours and instructor guidance
  • You are passionate about learning and want that added confidence and comfort working in a clinical setting with clients

What Will the Intensive Program Look Like?

Currently, the Diploma Program requires independent clinical hours outside of the classroom, where the student completes 10 case studies on volunteer clients at home in their own time frame. Some students have expressed a desire for extra support with guided clinical supervision with a practitioner; CSNN Vancouver Island will provide that in the classroom with 10.5 hours of clinic per week.  Students in this program will benefit from the unique hybrid learning environment of virtual plus in-class. This will be supervised by a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, a Naturopathic Doctor or a qualified instructor and will give the student needed guidance and an opportunity to interview clients in a supervised setting. This will enable the student to complete his/her 10 requisite case studies in the classroom, as opposed to independently at home.
