NASW-ND opposes the use of the ASWB social work licensure exam at all levels and recommends using graduation from a BSW and MSW accredited program as an adequate measure of competency for obtaining a LBSW and LMSW license."

NASW-ND Advocacy Committee and Board of Directors calls for the North Dakota Board of Social Work Examiners (NDBSWE) to take actionable steps to remove the social work licensure exam requirement for licensed BSW and MSW social workers.
