Nicole Vernon, Student Success Story

Nicole Vernon, M.S., Ed. S., NCSP

Monongalia County School Psychologist

I am pleased to write a success story in regards to the California University of Pennsylvania School Psychology Program. The School Psychology Program is designed in a prestigious way and incorporates informative curriculum and various practicum experiences. Not only were we given the opportunityto experience hands on activities through practicum, we were also provided additional hours in the School Psychology Clinic at the campus to further enhance our school psychology skills. Due to the extensive training and education, I was more than prepared while attending to my compensated internship through the program during my final year as a student. I had the opportunity to intern for Monongalia County Schools in West Virginia, and they were so pleased with my work ethics and knowledge that they offered me a fulltime position as a School Psychologist for their county. I am so grateful for the professors that have taught me everything about school psychology and the endeavors that were given to me through the school psychology program.

Thank you for everything!

Nicole Vernon
