This project employed the Biographical Narrative Interpretive Method (BNIM) to interview and analyse nurses' (5) and pre-school teachers' (3) life stories. The overall aim of the interpretation was to understand historically situated subjectivity in terms of the nurses' and pre-school teachers' personal, social and professional constraints and chosen options.
