Welcome to CSNN Vancouver
Welcome to CSNN Vancouver, B.C.’s premier school for holistic nutrition training. We are a thriving branch of CSNN, which celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2014 and remains the largest leading school to offer holistic nutrition education in Canada.
Dedicated to fostering skilled and confident nutrition professionals, our program focuses on natural nutrition as a vital component to any health and wellness regime. We offer a diploma program that is comprehensive, current, and integrative. By blending science, natural nutrition, the body/mind/spirit connection, and the environment, our students are encouraged to excel in many areas of this dynamic profession.
CSNN Vancouver has numerous features that make studying here a unique and rewarding experience. Equipped with two classrooms, we offer a variety of schedule options for the Natural Nutrition Diploma Program. Students can choose from day classes, night classes, a 1-year or a 2-year program— all of which lead to the same Registered Holistic Nutrition (R.H.N.) designation, and offer the same high standard of teaching and academic support.
In addition to the classrooms, we also have a state-of-the-art demonstration kitchen, where students receive 30 hours of instruction in whole and natural food preparation and receive a Holistic Culinary Certificate for completing all 30 hours of training. We are committed to making our students’ learning practical; by being hands-on in the kitchen, students build confidence and experience the health, wellness, and community that can be created by sharing real, whole foods.
Another strength of the program is our teaching faculty. Many of our instructors are Registered Holistic Nutritionists (R.H.N.s) who have specialized in various areas of the profession including: business, clinical, private practice, and environmental. We also have certified chefs, naturopaths, and homeopaths on staff—all of whom bring their diverse backgrounds and expertise to the classroom.
CSNN Vancouver is proud to be a Designated Learning Institution (DLI) as authorized by Citizenship & Immigration Canada. Study permit applicants require a learning institution’s DLI number to record on their study permit application. Our DLI # is O19584795462. Further, CSNN Vancouver has achieved Education Quality Assurance (EQA) designation. BC’s EQA designation, from the BC Ministry of Advanced Education, is Canada’s first and currently only provincial brand of quality for post-secondary education and is globally recognized as a symbol of quality education and consumer protection. We are also proud to be accredited with the Private Career Training Institutions Agency of B.C. (PCTIA).
And if location is everything, then CSNN Vancouver is blessed. We are located in the neighborhood of Kitsilano, where in terms of health, wellness and sustainability, the area abounds with opportunities for students to live what they learn.
By blending practical knowledge with hands-on experience in a supportive, student-centered learning environment, CSNN Vancouver provides an education that is truly holistic. Whether your interest in natural nutrition is based on personal growth, family health, or a professional career choice, we welcome you to join us here.
