TWU students have 100 percent pass rate on the national dietitians certification exam


DENTON — Twelve graduate students in the Texas Woman’s University’s nutrition program all recently passed the national board exam to become registered dietitians.

“TWU students on average scored three to five percent higher than the national average, which demonstrates the excellent teaching in the TWU nutrition program,” Martha Rew, associate clinical professor and dietetic internship director, said.

The students who passed the exam are: Amy Goodson of Alvin; Kara Collins of Bay City; Meredith Gropper Robinson, Kristi Parker Hatfield and Gauri Junnarkar of Dallas; Christina Viola of Keller; Melissa Montalbano of Houston; Tamara Kay Futrell of Lubbock; Alicia Brown of San Antonio; Michele Murphy of West Hartford, Conn.; Shannon Smith of Liberal, Kan.; and Katie Arndt-Green of Romeo, Mich.

The exam, administered by the Commission on Dietetic Registration, poses questions in the food and nutrition, as well as foodservice systems and management areas of practice.
