This does happen and as you begin your agency search this is one question we ask early. If there is not an MSW with two years post graduate experience (or an LCSW) as some states require, then Herzing will work with student to identify an off-site field instructor. Herzing pays field instructors, so we hope this is an added incentive and support for their time supervising an MSW student.
