MSW Students: Steps to Obtain Your Social Work License!

As graduation approaches, many students want to know the quickest way to get their Social Work Licenses (LSW).
 


NASW-NJ has developed a detailed checklist of the steps you must take to get an LSW in New Jersey. The checklist has been reviewed and approved by the NJ Board of Social Work Examiners (BSWE/Licensing Board). We provide this checklist so that you will not need to contact the BSWE to complete your application.
 


CLICK HERE or go to our website (www.naswnj.org) under Licensing for a link to the checklist. Please follow these steps, in order, for the smoothest path to licensure.
 


Remember: You can now take the exam (ASWB Master’s exam) any time after you have registered for the final semester of your MSW program. You will need to provide documentation to the BSWE from the institution where you are enrolled for the last semester of your MSW program.
