Meet James Darden IV ‘19! “I am currently in my first semester of my specialty year at YSN, and I have been enjoying the change of pace from GEPN. The variety of opportunities at Yale are beyond what I could have expected, and I have now found myself extending beyond my previous limits in many different domains. I have been working as a research assistant, teaching assistant, and I have taken on two roles in the student government. My evolution as a student and leader has expanded beyond what I previously thought was possible, and I am grateful for the opportunity and fortune to be attending this program.
My dream as a nurse practitioner is to function as a clinician, leader, and researcher in the realm of orthopedic surgery and sports medicine. Yale is the pinnacle of knowledge pursuit, as is reflected in our motto “Lux et Veritas”, “Light and Truth”. My thirst for knowledge will never be quenched, but I feel in good company every day when I walk through the doors of YSN.”
