How to become a Social Worker in Florida...

Below are basic guidelines for those wishing to earn their social work licensure in Florida. Most procedures and requirements remain constant over the years; however, it is wise to contact the Florida Board of Clinical Social Work at (850) 245-4474 to make sure you are on the right track.

Follow the steps to earn your Florida Social Work License:

Step One:

To receive a Florida clinical social worker license, you will need to earn your masters or doctoral degree from an approved school.

Request information from schools offering social work degree programs.
