At the January 3, 2014 meeting of a committee of the Virginia Board of Social Work public comment was made by the VSCSW concering three items that were brought up by another professional association:
1) Licensure Compact for Licensed Clinical Social Workers in jurisdictions that are contiguous to Virginia (similar to existing Nurse Licensure Compact)
2) Repeal of the Code of Virginia § 54.1-3701. Exemption from requirements of licensure.
3) Creating multi-tiered social work licensing to include a license for the practice of Clinical Social Work that is restricted to agency based setting practice. The qualifications for this license would be sufficient to acquire insurance company reimbursement.
