Resick Named Among Top 15 Family Nurse Practitioner Professors

Duquesne University's Dr. Lenore Resick is considered one of the 15 Top Family Nurse Practitioner Nursing Professors according to NursePractionerSchools.com.

A clinical professor of nursing, Resick is director of the Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) Program in Duquesne's School of Nursing. She also is the Noble J. Dick Endowed Chair in Community Outreach at Duquesne and is executive director of the Community-Based Health and Wellness Center for Older Adults.

NursePractitionerSchools.com, which considered facets of practice, leadership and awards for its methodology for the Top 15 list, stated that, "as a rule, family nurse practitioners are dedicated professionals. As such, those who choose to not only practice as family nurse practitioners, but also to devote significant time and resources to becoming FNP educators also tend to be dedicated, educated and devoted to their students."

Resick's clinical expertise led to Duquesne's School of Nursing implementing its FNP Program, which is offered online. In order to meet with the growing needs of the Community-Based Health and Wellness Center, Resick established the Retired Nurses Working in Neighborhoods Program, which recently received the Public Service Team Award as part of the region's 2013 Jefferson Awards.

In October, Resick will be inducted as a fellow to the prestigious American Academy of Nursing. In 2011, she received the Outstanding Service to NONPF (National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculty) Award. Resick was inducted as a fellow of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners in 2009 and also received a Cameos of Caring Educating Award. In 2007, she was presented with the Distinguished Nurse Award from the Pennsylvania State Nurses Association Award.

Resick is a resident of Emlenton, Clarion County.
