Abstract

In her article regarding a nurse’s perspective on the work hour limitations, Dawn Carpenter, DNP, ACNP-BC, notes that hospital work in general has transitioned to shift work because of the increase in the acuity of care of the hospitalized patient. She has noticed that residents are rested, refreshed and more engaged in didactic learning since the ICU has changed from 24-hour to 12-hour shifts.
