A Message from Executive Director Walter Kalman

NASW-NJ CE courses are approved for both NJ and NY! 

As you may have read in our CE course listing email that went out yesterday, effective immediately all continuing education courses offered by NASW-NJ will be accepted for New York social work licenses. We made sure to apply for this designation, since we know that many of you are licensed in both states. You can now take advantage of our CE courses and the Member-discount you receive when you register. And, you can rest assured that they are approved in both states.

So take a look at our upcoming CE courses and save the dates - May 1-3, 2016 - to attend the NASW-NJ Annual Conference in Atlantic City. While you're there, you can learn, relax, network and earn 20 CEUs that count for your license in NJ and in NY. We'll let you know when registration opens in December and we look forward to seeing you there.
