Social Work Licensure in Tennessee

Tennessee citizens trust that a licensed social worker has met specific educational, testing and continuing education requirements. Licensed social workers are under the oversight of the Tennessee Board of Social Work Licensure that has the authority and responsibility to issue licenses, and to take action when licensees have engaged in inappropriate practice. 

Professional regulation is important for public protection and to uphold social work values and ethics.


Learning Objectives:

1.       Provide the history, composition and charge of the Board of Social Work Licensure in Tennessee.           

2.      Increase understanding of the professional social work licenses and general requirements in Tennessee, including the application review, approval and denial process.

3.      Provide updates regarding continuing education and other legislative information for social work licensees and applicants.
