A MESSAGE FROM THE BOARD OF EXAMINERS:
We are reaching out to our constituents including licensees, interns, and applicants, as well agencies seeking verifications and those who may have filed complaints. The Board acknowledges significant room exists for improvement in the organizational performance to reach achieve our mission.
In the past 16 months the Board has been eager to implement strategies to meet the needs of our stakeholders more effectively by improving responsiveness and becoming more efficient. This has included technology and staffing, as well as structure, processes, office policy and procedure, and proposed changes to the Nevada Administrative Code.
With all the enthusiasm for planned changes unfortunately the organization has been also faced a number of unplanned changes in recent weeks, including a workforce reduction by two-thirds, two separate financial audits, and an address move. The Board and staff ask for patience and assures everyone
our upcoming meeting will address as many of the needs as possible and we invite your attendance. By the end of the year licenses will be renewed, and we will prioritize the course for improvement to be the effective organization we require and deserve.
