|Agency Decision Summary||
The petition was considered by the Board at its meeting on January 14, 2022. The Board has begun the regulatory action to propose acceptance of a state examination if the national exam was not required at the time a social worker was initially licensed in the other state. During the process of promulgating that regulation, it will consider acceptance of licensure by endorsement for applicants with lengthy experience who were grandfathered without examination in another state.
