Lattice QCD calculations of resonant meson-meson scattering amplitudes have improved significantly due to algorithmic and computational advances. However, progress in meson-nucleon scattering has been slower due to difficulties in computing the necessary correlation functions, the exponential signal-to-noise problem, and the finite-volume treatment of scattering with fermions. Nonetheless, first benchmark calculations have now been performed. I will review the status of lattice QCD calculations of meson-nucleon scattering amplitudes and comment on future prospects.
