The K-matrix approach with effective Lagrangians is used to describe the S and P pion-nucleon partial-wave amplitudes in the energy range $E_{lab} \le 1$ GeV. It is demonstrated, that treating the resonance as K-matrix a pole gives the natural way to separate the resonance and non-resonance parts of the $\pi N$ amplitude. The model includes all the four-star $\pi N$ resonances, the non-resonance contributions are calculated from relevant Feynman graphs without any phenomenological form factors. Different contributions to the inelastic $\pi^-p \to \eta n$ amplitude are estimated.
