Alaska Native Medical Center dietitians achieve special distinction

The hospital at the Alaska Native Medical Center (ANMC) recently became Alaska’s only hospital to have 100 percent of its inpatient dietitians achieve nutrition support certification through the National Board of Nutrition Support Certification (NBNSC).

The NBNSC is an independent credentialing board established in 1984 by the American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition. Nutrition support certification is awarded to individuals who have demonstrated the level of knowledge and skill required in the nutrition profession. Certified professionals are recognized as quality providers of nutrition support by the public, their colleagues, and other members of the health care team.

In addition to the nutrition support certification, the ANMC inpatient dietitians also have a pediatric nutrition specialist and an oncology nutrition specialist certified through the American Dietetic Association’s Commission on Dietetic Registration.

“We are a highly motivated team and continue to strive to provide the best, safest and highest level of nutrition to our patients,” said Samantha Maloney, ANMC’s medical nutrition therapy manager. “Patient safety and quality nutrition delivery remains our top priority.”
