    Maybe the Caucasian group, me included, has more problems in this area and we should have our own study...Guess that could be construed as some sort of prejudice....

    "To compare sleep disturbances and sleepiness in American Indian/Alaskan Native and White, non-Hispanic nurse shiftworkers. Social time customs and morningness will also be examined."

    What is morningness?

    Amount of alertness in morning after 8 hr shift..... or 12 hr shift..... or after the shift you want to escape from: 3 admits, 1 death and two codes????
