Between January and December of 2020, a prospective, cross-sectional, observational research was done with 264 nursing staff members, selected among 989 individuals at “Botucatu General Hospital” and stratified by professional type. Sleep quality (SQ) was measured using the Pittsburg Sleep Quality Index (PSQI), while sleep and health were measured using the WHOSAH. A conventional questionnaire was used to obtain expressed characteristics. Means and standard deviations for constant variables and percentages for categorical ones were provided. The correlation coefficient of Spearman's was used to analyze the strength of relationships. A statistical regression analysis, with age adjustment, was used to assess the link between night shift employment and gender in terms of sleep disruption. P 0.05 was considered significant. When considering age, the association between night shift work and a considerable decline in sleep quality for at least one measure remained substantial. Sleep problems were more common among women. A strong relationship existed between how well you slept and lived. There is a correlation between how well nurses sleep and how satisfied they are with their lives, both of which are influenced by the nature of the nursing profession
