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.

This year your chapter is giving back! 

We know how difficult this year has been for many of you, as such the NASW-NV chapter has decided to revamp our fall offering to allow us to give back to you, the NASW-NV member.  That's why we are excited to announce the fall event will be $10.00 for members of NASW-NV and the cost of membership to NASW-NV +$10.00 for nonmembers who are residents of Nevada. 

This year’s Rethinking Ethics: 2020 NASW-Illinois Chapter Conference will be taking place on Friday, October 23rd, 2020 in a new virtual format*  Meet with other social work professionals from around the state to earn up to 6 CEUs (including ethics) toward your license renewal in our virtual platform. Engage with Nevada's vendor and social services in our interactive virtual exhibit hall and most importantly connect with your peers at a time we could all use a little more supportive interaction. Goto the Chapter Conference webpage to learn more and to register today.  Space is limited.


*Due to the uncertainty of in-person events in Nevada for the fall, this year's conference will utilize a virtual structure which allows registrants to attend live virtually.
