A group of 43 student nurses were studied before and immediately after their first eight weeks of nightwork.
Volunteers answered questions about their general health, sleep, and eating habits, as well as their social lives and relationships with friends.
In all measures there was a deterioration produced by nightwork.
About half the subjects volunteered the view that the forthcoming nightwork would cause a decline in the standard of their lifestyle or that it would improve now that nightwork had finished.
This subgroup showed a significantly greater deterioration in interpersonal relationships, even though general health status was not significantly different.
