Few research studies have examined social work practitioners and their licensure practices and pathways, or how policies affect licensure choices. Pathways to licensure, particularly the process of movement from graduation to licensure, along with the type of license, and the length of time a license is held were analyzed using administrative data from a state agency responsible for professional licensure administration and two schools of social work in the same state. The analysis prioritized the review of individuals who have held or do hold multiple licenses. Results indicated (a) that the majority of people who pursue licensure do so shortly after graduation; (b) that once licensed, graduates maintain their licenses for long periods of time; (c) that the majority of graduates do not pursue licensure; and (d) that policy contexts and opportunities for licensure at different levels affect licensure decision making. The analysis resulted in detailed information regarding the decisions graduates are making to pursue their licenses, the impact of policy on licensure pathways, the intersection of jurisdictional policy and license mobility, and the process of how social workers move through various levels of licensure.
