Long shifts + fatigue = Burnout: Balancing the equation
Do you often feel tired or lack energy while “on the clock”? Traditional eight-hour workdays have long been a thing of the past for nurses as the condensed model of twelve-hour shifts has been embraced. When surveyed about a condensed workweek, nurses continually report high levels of satisfaction, as they believe it improves their work-life balance. However, despite the popularity of the condensed workweek, the unpredictability of actual shift lengths often results in nurses putting in unplanned overtime beyond their scheduled week — which leads to burnout.
