Continuing Education 


Effective March 1, 2017 any CEUs that are approved by ASWB (Association of Social Work Boards) or NASW (National Association of Social Workers) National Office or Nevada Chapter will automatically be approved by the State of Nevada Board of Examiners for Social Workers. You will no longer need to submit an approval for these trainings.

Earn CEUs Through NASW's Social Work Online CE Institute


NASW Nevada is pleased to announce that we recently launched a new online continuing education resource for Nevada social workers, the Social Work Online CE Institute. This convenient method for obtaining  your Nevada continuing education units became possible when the Board of Examiners for Social Workers decided to accept all CEU courses approved by the NASW National Office.

Available 24 hours a day, the Social Work Online CE Institute offers courses in a variety of formats—webinars, webcasts, podcasts, presentations, etc. Courses will continue to be added and cover numerous practice areas. The site is sortable and searchable to help you find the training programs that best meet your professional development needs.

All courses offered are NASW accredited, and members receive discounted prices, some courses are even free to members.
