    "The purpose of this study was to reformulate the nature of stress in nursing, with attention to important contextual aspects of nurses' practice. Smith's sociological frame of institutional ethnography was used to explicate the social organization of nurses' stress. Data collection methods included in-depth interviews, participant observation, and focus groups with pediatric intensive care nurses." (excerpt from abstract)
