Currently, there are no provisions in Law or Administrative Code which require supervision of LBSW or LMSW practice.
However, LBSWs and LMSWs may not practice privately.
ONLY a LCSW may practice social work privately. North Dakota Law (NDCC 43-41-01) defines the private practice of social work as "the independent practice of social work by a qualified individual who is self-employed on a full-time or part-time basis and is responsible for that independent practice. Consultation services provided to an organization or an agency are not considered to be the private practice of social work."
