|The Board is considering an amendment to licensure by endorsement that would allow acceptance of a state examination rather than the national examination, which is currently required for licensure in Virginia. A state examination would be acceptable only if another U. S. jurisdiction did not require the national examination at the time the social worker was initially licensed and if the examination was deemed to be a comparable level for the license being sought.
|Only affects this chapter.
