The license data included in search results is provided and controlled by the Minnesota Board of Social Work. License information is updated in real time, is secure, and is considered primary source for verification of a Minnesota social work license.
  • Use the link above to find out if a social worker is licensed, verify a social work license and view public adverse actions, or print your license information
    • Search by name, license number, license type, city, or county
    • Any of the search fields can be left blank—if you are having trouble looking up a social work license, try searching with less information in the search fields
    • You can type just the first few letters of a first or last name to search, for example, to search for Jane Doe, you can type "ja" into the first name field and "d" into the last name field
The Board has jurisdiction over licensed social workers. Remember that some social workers are exempt from licensure and not required to be licensed, may use the social worker title under Minnesota law, and aren't under the Boards jurisdiction.
