Governor's Proclamation

Governor Sisolak formally recognizes the Board of Examiners for Social Worker's thirty-fifth anniversary.

AB 327 - Cultural Competency and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion CEUs

In the 2021 Legislative Session, AB 327 was passed.  This law adds to our list of legislatively mandated Continuing Education Units (CEUs).  These CEUs will require a 100% audit and will be uploaded with your renewal on your collection cycle year.  Please see the attached document for more information.

Fingerprinting Process

Effective July 1, 2021, the Board will accept fingerprint submissions done via Live Scan for individuals residing in Nevada.  The fingerprint waiver document will still be required and must be sent to the Board with the receipt that shows that the fingerprints were submitted to the Nevada Department of Public Safety.  For individuals not in Nevada, we will still require submission of two fingerprint cards as has been our tradition.

    Board's Strategic Plan

    The Board developed a "Strategic Plan' in August 2018. 

    This plan was reviewed and updated in December 2019.  

    The attached documents provide more information in to the details of our plan. 

    CEU Approval Changes

    Effective March 1, 2017 any CEUs that are approved by ASWB (Association of Social Work Boards) or NASW (National Association of Social Workers) will automatically be approved by the Social Work Board. You will no longer need to submit an approval for these trainings.
