Abstract

Studies have shown that shift work can have a negative impact on job performance, sleep, physical and emotional health, social life, family life, drug use and level of job-related stress. For nurses, these negative effects have consequences not just for the individual, but for the workplace, as decreased alertness and reduced job performance could endanger human lives.
