Nurses: Do You Nap on the Night Shift? Take Our Quick Poll

August 25, 2016

Following the publication of a Medscape article, Should Night-Shift Nurses Nap at Work?, hundreds of nurses shared their opinions and experiences with napping on the night shift. Clearly, napping is a topic of interest to night shift nurses!

We would like to find out more about how common this practice is, and if it is supported by the hospital administration. Whether you nap or don't nap when working nights, please complete this quick survey, and we will report the results on Medscape. Tell us in comments where you nap and anything else you'd like to share about your napping experiences.
