Social Work is a Public Trust. The major reason for licensure is to protect citizens from unethical or negligent social work practice. It is illegal to practice social work in North Dakota without a license.

The regulatory body overseeing social work in North Dakota is the North Dakota Board of Social Work Examiners (NDBSWE). The NDBSWE licenses social workers in North Dakota and handles complaints. The governor appoints two licensed social workers; one licensed certified social workers; one licensed independent clinical social worker; and two public members. No member shall serve more than two consecutive terms. Additional information on the NDBSWE can be found on the following two web sites:

Before you consult or hire a social worker, call the NDBSWE office or use their web site search engine, to verify the social worker's license.
