Abstract/Description

Fatigue can be attributed to a combination of many things; physical labor, emotions, and subjective/cognitive activity, therefore it may become a problem in all individuals in the workplace. Registered Nurses have become more prone to taking on 12-hour shifts and the role of a "supernurse," so they are more likely to become fatigued/exhausted during work hours. This becomes an issue because it may lead to increased risk of hospital and measurement errors, poor patient safety and communication skills, and the possibility of drowsy driving. The goal of this study to capture what nurses feel and think about fatigue and what they believe is the source of fatigue within the workplace.
