Licensing exams serve as gatekeepers to ensure the wellbeing of consumers of the profession. They don't discriminate between optimal and suboptimal clinicians. Unfortunately, many great clinicians fail licensing exams while other ill-prepared individuals pass them.
I believe being licensed helps improve self-confidence and increases credibility, which in turn may influence others to perceive licensed clinicians as better clinicians. Clinical skills and other factors makes good clinicians, not a license.
