I work mostly 12 hour nights and we take our breaks all in one go and usually we have time for at least two hours. During this we sleep. Usually we have an empty bed on the floor or we can sleep on the couch in our break room. I have a fluffy comforter and a non plastic pillow that I keep on hand. We can do what ever we want on break.

At my hospital, nurses can get in big trouble if they are found sleeping on their breaks.

I have long thought that if management provided, say for argument's sake, a men's room and women's room each with 2 sets of 3 bunks that I'd gladly work part of the night shift after 2-3 hours uninterrupted, clocked-out sleep when they're short on a given night shift. (Single student working my way through RN school so yeah I need the $:uhoh3:$ ;) ) the unit I'm currently working NEVER has aides on nights except the occasional 1:1 which means yet another floor is out their aide(s) (or the ER clerk/tech) and then nobody has a good night!

When I worked nights I would have given anything to have a place to take a 30 min nap..ESPECIALLY when I was working a double shift. Frequently I was not safe to drive home.
