Dr. Lenore K.

In 1994, Dr. Resick joined the School of Nursing faculty, as the first clinically practicing, nationally board certified FNP faculty member. Her clinical expertise led the development and implementation of the clinical courses in the first Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) Program at Duquesne University. When the FNP program moved into an online format, Dr Resick took the lead and developed and implemented the first online clinical courses in the FNP Program at Duquesne University. During her tenure at Duquesne, Dr Resick was appointed the Noble J. Dick Endowed Chair in Community Outreach and served as the Director of the FNP Program and the Executive Director of the Community-Based Health and Wellness Center for Older Adults (Health and Wellness Center). Dr Resick established the RN+WIN (Retired Nurses Working in Neighborhoods) Program which received the Jefferson Public Service Team Award for volunteerism.

Dr. Resick has published and presented on topics related to the community-based wellness model. Her research interests include phenomenology, environmental health, health and wellness, and the meaning of health among vulnerable populations, including African American older adults, Appalachian women, Russian speaking immigrants and Iraqi refugees.

Dr Resick is a Fellow of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners and the American Academy of Nursing. She received the Outstanding Service to NONPF (National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculty) Award and the Distinguished Nurse Award by the Pennsylvania State Nurses Association (PSNA).
