Abstract/Description

When looking for a job, nurses have the opportunity to work 8 or 12 hour shifts. In todays generation 12 hour shifts are becoming more of a trend with job openings, and 8 hour shifts are becoming a thing of the past. After reviewing many evidence based research articles, the 8 hour shifts we once had, should no longer be put on the back burner. Research is stating that in those last 4 hours of a 12-hour work day, more errors are occurring, and patient safety is becoming a concern.
