Nevada Social Work Continuing Education

Free State Social Work is approved as a continuing education provider by the Association of Social Work Boards Approved Continuing Education Program (provider #1235) and the National Board for Certified Counselors (provider #6605).  We are also approved by the Kansas Behavioral Sciences Regulatory Board (provider 10-001) and the Florida Board of Clinical Social Work, Marriage and Family Therapy and Mental Health Counseling (CE Provider # 50-13565).

Does the Nevada Board accept courses from ASWB-approved continuing education providers?

Yes.  Any CEUs that are approved by ASWB will automatically be approved by the Social Work Board.  You will no longer need to submit an approval for these trainings.

How many hours can I earn with on-line continuing education courses?

All hours may be earned online.

Continuing education should improve or enhance the knowledge and competency of a licensee in the practice of social work.

When you are planning your CEUs. please remember that NAC 641B 187.5 states  “a licensee may not take a program of continuing education which presents the same material he or she took during the immediately preceding reporting period.”  This has been an issue for licensees related to their mandated suicide prevention CEUs.  For example, if you had a 2019 collection cycle and took “Workshop A” in 2019, you could not take that workshop again until you were in your 2023 collection cycle.

Please remember that we have done our best to research your state’s licensing guidelines. Licensing regulations can change frequently including guidelines about how many hours you can earn on-line. Most jurisdictions require a certain number of hours in ethics and other areas of practice. The final authority for approving any continuing education activity rests with your state board. Even those states that endorse the ACE program may have exceptions in terms of the courses that they will accept. It is ultimately your responsibility to understand the licensing regulations in your state.

Nevada Social Work CEUs? Trainings? Contact Hours? Credit Hours?
