NASW-NJ has developed a detailed checklist of the steps you must take to get an LSW in New Jersey. The checklist has been reviewed and approved by the NJ Board of Social Work Examiners (BSWE/Licensing Board). We provide this checklist so that you will not need to contact the BSWE to complete your application.
