The mass spectra of nucleon resonances with spin 1/2, 3/2, and 5/2 are systematically studied in the constituent quark model with meson-quark coupling, which is inspired by the spontaneous breaking of chiral symmetry of QCD. The meson-quark coupling gives rise not only to the one-meson-exchange potential between quarks but also to the self-energy of baryon resonances due to the existence of meson-baryon decay channels. The two contributions are consistently taken into account in the calculation. The gross properties of the nucleon resonance spectra are reproduced fairly well although the predicted mass of N(1440) is too high.
