Jurisprudence Handbook

Article Index

Introduction

As college proclamation is imminent, this handbook refers to the Nova Scotia College of Dietitians and Nutritionists (NSCDN).

The Jurisprudence e-Learning Module is a component of NSCDN’s mandatory Continuing Competency Program (CCP). The Module aims to support dietitians in maintaining a current understanding of the regulatory, provincial, and federal requirements related to dietetic practice. The legal principle "ignorance of the law excuses no one" means that a person unaware of a law may not escape liability for violating it merely because they were unaware. The Module provides dietitians with information related to laws, regulations, standards, and guidelines that govern dietitians' practice.
