APHSW Certification Program Information Session
Wednesday, January 19, 2022, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EST
Category: Events

The APHSW Certification is the first-ever testing and certification process specifically for hospice and palliative social workers. Unlike other certification programs, the APHSW-C designation requires verification of knowledge and competency-based on passing an exam specifically and scientifically constructed to reflect the essential knowledge and skills required for specialty practice. While both nurses and physicians practicing in palliative and/or hospice care have had evidence­-based competency certification programs for many years, this is the first such program for social workers in this field.

Social workers practicing in this specialty can now apply for certification! The application for the next testing period opens on February 1, 2022.

Join SWHPN for an information session hosting Vickie Leff, LCSW, APHSW-C, Executive Director of the APHSW Certification Program, on Wednesday, January 19 at 12:00 pm EST. Vickie will review important information about the APHSW-C designation, the Employer Partnership Program, and the next testing period. She will be available to answer your questions about the APSHW Certification Program, including:

  • Is the APHSW certification right for you?
  • Wondering about the benefits of becoming APHSW-Certified?
  • What are the requirements for becoming certified?

If you cannot attend live, a recorded version will be posted on the SWHPN and APHSW-C websites following the presentation.

Note: SWHPN is a long-time supporter and partner of the APHSW-C program. SWHPN is not the administrator of the APHSW certification program or exam, but provides educational tools and learning opportunities for those wishing to become certified.
