process and try to keep the right perspective. Separating "exemplary from ordinary"-great mindset.REPLY QUOTE EMAIL AUTHOR15 days ago Julian Marsh RE: Discussion 1 - Week 3COLLAPSEHello Andrell,It is great to read your post especially since Texas was one of the states I was considering movingto. Looking at the requirements for Texas in comparison to Virginia it is dissimilar. I agree with your statement “only the strong survive” because in this field once you commit yourself by putting in the hours, educational requirements, and financial obligation that separates hard working and dedication from meeting the minimal standards. Do you feel it may be a challenge completing the 30 hours of continuous education every two years to stay licensed?

Dr. HymanREPLY QUOTE EMAIL AUTHOR11 days ago Danielle Smith RE: Discussion 1 - Week 3COLLAPSEI found it interesting that the state of Texas only has two pathways an individual can choose. I'm unsure if their is an option for an individual at the bachelors level. I have noticed that some states don't recognize individuals who have a BSW to become lincensed. I did notice that Texas just like North Carolina require those interested in Lincensure have to pay for the test and for renewal. I do believe that can be a challenge for some who experience financial hardships.REPLY QUOTE EMAIL AUTHOR16 days ago Tamara Bruno RE: Discussion 1 - Week 3COLLAPSEThere are 4 different types of social work degrees that are accepted in the state of Nevada; LSW (Licensed Social Worker) at the Bachelors level with Bachelors level ASWB, MSW (Masters Social Work) at the Masters level with Masters level ASWB, LCSW (Licensed Clinical Social Worker) at the Masters level with clinical testing from ASWB, and LISW (Licensed Independent Social Worker) which is advanced studies and generalist test from the ASWB. All applicants are required to have graduated from a CSWE program at any level and be over the age of 21. All licenses require an official transcript to be sent directly to the board, and an official background check. In 2016 Nevada passed Bill 93; which required all social workers at all levels to complete aminimum of 1 CEU hour of suicide prevention yearly regardless of exemption from other CEU's. The LCSW and LISW require a birth certificate or passport. The standard renewal for a social worker is after 1 year of being initially licensed then every two years after the probationary year. The Board does require that they are to be notified within 30 days of change in employment or mailing address. (Socwork.nv.gov) To hold a standard LSW in the state of Nevada an applicant requires to test for licensing upon completion of degree within 3 years. A social worker must hold one of these 4 licenses to practice in the state.
