Nursing Sleep Study: How do you stay alert?

  1. 0
    Hello,

    I'm a master's student in medical anthropology working on a project on how nurses sleep. This is a noncommercial academic project. Here's a description:

    How do you balance stress, work, life, and sleep? We want to know! The University of North Texas is studying how nurses manage their lives and schedules. How does having a job that requires you to be on and alert all the time affect your life at home and the sleep that you get? Participating in the study is easy, and we would love to hear from you. Its a one-hour interview about work and sleep that can be done over the phone. Please contact Dr. Doug Henry at dhenry@unt.edu or (940) 565-3836 for more information.

    You can always PM me too if you're interested. Any and all nurses of interest to this project. We would love to hear from you! Thanks!

How does having a job that requires you to be “on” and alert all the time affect your life at home and the sleep that you get? Participating in the study is easy, and we would love to hear from you.

    I think their feeling of responsibility toward the patients keep them alert...it's their duty right!

    So how much are you going to be paying me for an hour of my time for your project? I make time to sleep a priority in my life. I care enough about my patients to make sure I have a decent amount of sleep before I show up for work.

    I try to make sure I get at least 6 hours of sleep a night. I have to be at work at 5 a.m. I am a dialysis nurse. I go to bed at between 9:30 and 10:00.

    The amount of sleep I get (or don't) depends upon if I happen to be deployed at that time.
    When deployed we are on duty 12 hours, 7 days a week. If the battle rhythm slows down, then we may get an "on call" day which means you could do one of four things: sleep, eat, do laundry or hang out in the hospital.

    When I redeploy to the rear and at my duty station, with all the "voluntold" committees etc I need to be on, I get around 4 hours of sleep. I work nights plus go to school. My first night off I take a nap, then sleep that night, then sometimes I sleep part of the day away. Ahh, the life of a Soldier!
