- Mar 12, '12 by msjellybeanI can get by on 4, but only in a pinch. Generally 6-7 is good for me before I go to work. On my days off, I typically sleep 8-9. I worked Sat/Sun this weekend and losing that hour of sleep really messed with me.
When I was on nights, I worked the fall back time change once & vowed never to do it again. Guess I forgot to think about the spring one as well. Oops.
- Mar 12, '12 by nurse_kimboI'm good on about four hours per night. The more I sleep, the groggier I am when I wake up. My Dad was the same way.
- Mar 12, '12 by calinurse11I absolutley love my sleep, nursing school almost killed me with those 2-3 hour night sleeps. Im good with 7 hours but on my days off I can easily sleep 10-12 hours.
- Mar 13, '12 by netglowI think that it's probably 6 for me, my sleep cycle. I will easily wake at the 6 hour mark if there is some noise to arouse me. But I am sure I need 7 to 8.
- Mar 13, '12 by ~PedsRN~I can function really well on no sleep - but I'm lucky in that I can sleep when I need it if that makes sense. I work nights, and I'm pretty flexible when it comes to sleep. I am not one of those weird people that becomes "nocturnal" when working nights. LOL! On my nights off after working, I will sleep when I get off, get up in the afternoon, and go back to sleep around 11:30 - 12am and sleep all night. I guess I "catch up" on my days off, if that makes sense.
I love sleep.
- Mar 14, '12 by Perpetual StudentI can be awake 24 hours without too significant of dysfunction, assuming adequate caffeine intake. After like 32 hours or so I start to feel really weird and hallucinate. I can sleep like 3-4 hours per night during the week and then sleep most of the weekend without feeling too lousy.
I totally PREFER to sleep 8-12 hours per night though.
