A: In this situation, it's essential to address the matter promptly and accurately. Start by gathering all relevant documentation, including your current cosmetology license and any records that confirm its validity. This will be crucial in clarifying the misunderstanding.

Respond to the Nevada State Board of Cosmetology in writing. In your response, politely state that your license is valid and include copies of the documentation to support your claim. It's important to be clear and concise in your communication.

As for how the Board might have made this error, there are a few possibilities. It could be a clerical mistake, a mix-up with names or license numbers, or an issue with their records. While these errors are uncommon, they do happen.

If you're uncertain about how to proceed, or if the issue isn't resolved after your initial response, consider seeking legal advice. An attorney experienced in licensing and regulatory issues can offer guidance and, if necessary, represent you in communications with the Board.

Remember, maintaining open and professional communication with the Board is key. Most issues like this can be resolved once the correct information is presented and verified.
