Nicholas Ndonye Mutuku is the organized, capable, mature head nurse who has been with the Kisesini Clinic since its beginning in 2007. Initially he was an accountant. He was encouraged to study nursing by his mother who thought nursing would provide the feeling of helping his community that Nicholas wanted. His Community Health Nursing degree was completed in 3 1/2 years. He has worked in Nairobi, Mombasa Highway, and then was in charge of surgical wards and theater in Machakos.
