NASWVA Licensing

 

It’s renewal time.  NASWVA provides value to its members by offering consultation regarding licensure and as well as Continuing Education trainings.  NASWVA also facilitates local gatherings for its members by organization local chapter meetings.

 

Recent changes by the Virginia Board of Social Work require annual licensure renewal.  In 2010, the Board introduced changes to the Regulations Governing the Practice of Social Work to require licensees to renew their license on an annual basis, rather than a biannual basis. The amended Regulations became effective on December 30, 2015. The Regulations now require that CE hours are completed prior to licensure renewal in even years beginning with the 2017 renewals. The chart below provides clarification as to the number of CE hours required for each renewal period.

NASW VIRGINIA UPCOMING EVENTS 

 

NASW Virginia's Innovative "Resilience-Driven Leadership Series"
 
 
Resilience-Driven Leadership (RDL) taps into the core principles of social work leadership and trauma-informed practice to provide attendees with the state-of-the-art tools and strategies they need to serve at the highest levels of excellence. Modules in the training series are geared toward:
  • Current supervisors, managers and directors
  • Clinicians, practitioners and other direct service providers who take on or aspire to managerial roles
  • All social workers aiming to sharpen or develop leadership skills
The RDL training series program is comprised of 5 leadership, independent modules. Each module is a full day (7 CE) session. The 5 modules accommodate a wide variety of leadership goals. They are not sequential, so social workers can choose to enroll in just one module, attend several, or complete the entire series.
 
Those who successfully complete all 5 modules in the training series program will earn a total of 35 CEs and a "Leadership Certificate" from NASW-VA.
