More than 130 students, faculty, alumni, and nurses attended the “Making a Million in Nursing Seminar” that took place on April 4 in the Williamson Theater at the College of Staten Island (CSI). Keynote speaker Laura Gasparis Vonfrolio RN, PhD, presented various entrepreneurial opportunities in the nursing field such as invention development, starting a CPR business, developing seminars, DVD and app development, as well as publishing, marketing, and advertising strategies.

A nurse for more than 40 years, Dr. Vonfrolio is the President of Education Enterprises, a national nursing seminar company offering seminars, vacations, and educational products for nurses.

Karen Arca-Contreras, DNP, Department of Nursing Lecturer and Success Coach Coordinator in the Nursing Student Success Coaching and Retention Program, was pleased that, “The ‘Making a Million in Nursing Seminar’ gave participants detailed and expert insight on potential future opportunities available in the profession of nursing. I’m grateful to Dr. Vonfrolio for truly enlightening our students and opening their minds to areas of nursing that they may have never considered.”

Through the Nursing Student Success Coaching program, faculty success coaches assist students in developing, implementing, and evaluating a strategic plan to achieve short and long term educational goals.

“The literature indicates that all students can benefit from proactive and ongoing nursing support strategies, especially prior to and during the first semester,” Dr. Contreras stated.

Dr. Vonfrolio has appeared on Nightline with Ted Koppell and Good Morning America. She was on the cover of Income Opportunities and was featured in The Wall Street Journal three times. The author of 11 books and numerous articles, Dr. Vonfrolio has held positions of staff nurse, staff development instructor, and tenured Assistant Professor of Nursing at CSI.
