    Days in the Lives of Gerontological Social Workers is a book edited by Linda May Grobman and Dara Bergel Bourassa. It includes first person accounts of 44 real-life social workers and shows the wide variety of career options for professional social workers who work with older adults. Since most states also require geriatric social workers to become licensed, you should also consider earning a master’s degree as well. In order to take the social work licensure examination in your state, however, you’ll most likely be required to complete about 3, hours of supervised fieldwork as well.
