Michigan Licensing

I'm hoping someone knows this.
When I was in school (MSW) I was told a person can get their license in both clinical and macro with one as the primary and one as the secondary- you get the same hours in your primary as normal and slightly fewer in the secondary, and take both tests. And I have seen people who claim to be licensed as both macro and clinical.
I'm only just now get around to trying to get my limited license because I'm still unemployed and licensing is expensive! (at least it is to me since I have no income yet).
But looking at the forms, it says you have to choose either clinical or macro- and doesn't give any option for doing both. I don't want to guess and mess things up (can I select both and pay twice the fee? Can I apply for one now and send a second application for the other later?)

So hoping someone here knows about this!


EDIT: Ok looking closer at the forms I see that there is an option to do both, it just isn't under the limited license box.
The one I am looking at is the Application for Master's Social Worker License
It says
[]Limited Master's Social Worker License Fee:$40.00 71-6801-03
[]Clinical []Macro
[]Master's Social Worker License- Clinical- Fee: $40.00 71-6801-01
[]Add Macro Fee $15.00 71-6801-01
[]Master's Social Worker License- Macro- Fee $40.00 71-6801-01
[]Add Clinical Fee $15 71-6801-01
[]Master's Social Worker License- by Endorsement- Fee $40.00 71-6801-09
[]Clinical []Macro"

This is still confusing me. From what it looks like to me though... I could apply for the limited license in one of the other, and then later apply for a full license with my hours and add on the other at that time?


Hello! Welcome to my new blog about macro social work practice.

What is macro social work practice?

Macro social work focuses on changing larger systems, such as communities and organizations. It can also involve action at the national and international level.Macro social work students need to have a basic understanding of social justice values, a commitment to working with the comunity, flexibility and patience, analytical thinking, perspective and vision, and persistence to follow through with tasks in ambivalent situations.This field prepares students for professional careers in multiple arenas such as community organization, public health, occupational/administration, research and education, consulting, nonprofits and philanthropy, local/state/federal government, and program evaluation.

Who can use this site?

ANYONE! This is an ACTIVE forum for macro social work students and professionals who want to share their knowledge and skills. This is a great networking site to meet other people who share your interests. As a current social work student, I will periodically moderate this site. I encourage discussion on any issues (school, workplace, policy, technology, etc.). In addition, we need to educate others about the work that we do and its impact on the greater society.

You can post any news, stories, questions, and thoughts related to macro social work practice here! Enjoy!
