Abstract/Description

Night shift nurses are exceptionally prone to sleep deprivation as they are affected by a modified circadian rhythm. With numerous factors that may negatively impact night shift sleepiness, methods to manage sleep fatigue should be identified. The objective of the research is to identify sleep hygiene and coping strategies used among night shift nurses and to evaluate its relationship with sleep deprivation relief. The study utilizes a multifaceted questionnaire which includes items about demographic characteristics, sleep quality, sleep hygiene, and coping mechanisms sent to participants of nurses with at least six months of night shift work and acute care experience. By examining the influence of sleep deprivation on the sample group, their reported interventions and coping strategies can be distinguished. Identifying interventions and coping strategies night shift nurses use to combat sleep deprivation will improve the nursing care they provide.

Keywords: sleep deprivation, sleep hygiene, sleep quality, coping mechanism, night shift
