Bio

Dr. Lenore K. Resick, Clinical Professor and Noble J. Dick Endowed Chair in Community Outreach, received her Diploma from Presbyterian University Hospital School of Nursing, her bachelors and masters degrees in nursing from the University of Pittsburgh, and her post masters certificate in Transcultural Nursing and Doctor of Philosophy Degree from Duquesne University. Dr Resick continues to maintain an active clinical practice as a family nurse practitioner with a focus on disease prevention, health promotion, wellness and self-care management in the context of chronic disease.  

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 (Individual Across the Lifespan) Nurse Practitioner Program at Duquesne University. When the program moved into an online format, Dr Resick took the lead and developed and implemented the first online clinical courses in the Family (Individual Across the Lifespan) Nurse Practitioner Program at Duquesne University. Currently, Dr Resick serves as the Director of the Family (Individual Across the Lifespan) Nurse Practitioner Program and the Executive Director of Community-Based Health & Wellness Center for Older Adults. In order to meet the growing needs of the center, Dr. Resick established the RN+WIN (Retired Nurses Working in Neighborhoods) Program, which was selected as one of the 2013 Jefferson Awards Recepient in Western Pennsylvania.

Dr. Resick has published and presented on topics related to the nursing center wellness model and health issues related to the environment. Her research interests include health and wellness and the meaning of heath among vulnerable populations, including African American older adults, Appalachian women, Russian speaking immigrants and Iraqi refugees.

During her tenure at Duquesne University, Dr Resick was inducted as a Fellow of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners. She was honored nationally by being chosen by her peers to receive the Outstanding Service to NONPF (National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculty Award). At the state level, she received the Distinguished Nurse Award by the Pennsylvania State Nurses Association (PSNA) in recognition of outstanding contributions to the PSNA members and nursing.
