Why Obtain a Social Work Credential?

Obtaining a credential is the next progression in a social worker's professional career. Beyond the educational degree and professional license, credentials are a voluntary pursuit. Voluntary credentials denote professional commitment and achievement and represent a "license plus" feature of certifying knowledge and experience that meets or exceeds excellence in social work at the national level.
  • Holders of NASW professional social work credentials and advanced practice specialty credentials become part of the most widely recognized social work organization in the nation.
  • Credentialed social workers are recognized as having in-depth knowledge, proven work experience, leadership capacity, competence, and dedication to the social work profession.
  • Credential holders agree to a critical review process that strives to measure adherence to the NASW Code of Ethics, NASW Standards for Continuing Professional Education, and national practice standards consistent with the area of specialized social work practice.
  • Some employers seek highly credentialed professionals to fill key leadership positions within their organizations and agencies or factor voluntary credentials in their salary scales.
