Courtesy of our friends at Bradley University via Online Degrees we have an article and infographic about nurses working the late shift.  There is nothing more important than nurses learning how to be more resilient and helping them to focus on self care.  Anyone who works the night shift can benefit from this.  Read below:

Many nurses put in 12-hour shifts, while others work night shifts. Although these types of schedules are expected as a requirement of their job, many nurses expose themselves to different types of health risks that often are associated with prolonged work hours and disruptions to a normal circadian rhythm. To avoid health issues, it is critical to understand the nature of the problem and provide nurses and other workers with ways to reduce risks and manage late-shift schedules.
