NASW has a proud tradition of setting the highest standards for social work practice, since the creation of the NASW Code of Ethics in 1955. NASW has been a significant advocate for social work licensure laws modeled on NASW practice standards as a benchmark for competent practice. NASW continues to offer credentials and certifications recognizing social worker expertise. NASW takes its responsibility seriously to protect consumers, empower the profession and demonstrate to employers and the community the quality and contribution of social work knowledge, skills and expertise.
NASW standards set specific guidelines for practice in a variety of settings. They guide clinical social work practice, inform consumers, and help maintain and improve the quality of services provided.
