It is a tricky combination, being a nurse. You have to have the skill, yet you have to have a nurturing touch.

An entire week is devoted to highlighting and thanking our nation's nurses, with National Nurses Week beginning Tuesday. On top of that, a brand new pool of nurses graduates from the Texas Tech School of Nursing this weekend.

Emmanuel Mwaka is just one of the students walking the stage. At 44-years-old, he is anxious to get back to his wife and three children living in Houston. Watch the attached video to hear Mwaka's entire story, including what brought him to America from Uganda as a young man.
