Emlenton Resident Inducted as 2009 AANP Fellow

Dr. Leni Resick, associate professor of nursing at Duquesne University, was recently inducted as a Fellow of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) at the AANP’s national conference.

The AANP’s Fellow program was established in 2000 to recognize nurse practitioner leaders who have made outstanding contributions to health care through nurse practitioner clinical practice, research, education or policy. Priority initiatives of the Fellow program include the development of leadership and mentorship programs for nurse practitioners and nurse practitioner students.

Resick serves as director for both the Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) Program and the Nurse-Managed Wellness Center for Duquesne’s School of Nursing. She is a key leader for the school’s online FNP program and was a consultant to the FNP program developed at the University of Puerto Rico.

Resick received the 2007 Distinguished Nurse Award from the Pennsylvania State Nurses’ Association and the 2006 Eugene P. Beard Award for Leadership in Ethics at Duquesne University. Her work has been published in the American Journal for Nurse Practitioners and Home Health Management and Practice.

A resident of Emlenton, Resick earned her Ph.D. in nursing and her post-master’s certificate in transcultural/international nursing from Duquesne. She holds an MSN and BSN in nursing from the University of Pittsburgh.
