Background and Objective: Sleep hygiene can affect the quality and duration of sleep and is related to psychological symptoms. Therefore, the current study aimed to determine the relationship of sleep hygiene with job burnout and sleep attitudes among nurses.
Materials and Methods: The present study was a descriptive cross-sectional correlational study. The statistical population included all nurses in the city of Kerman, Iran, in 2021, among whom, 152 samples were selected using a convenience sampling method and inclusion criteria. The tools employed to collect the required data consisted of a demographic information form, the Sleep Hygiene Practices Scale (SHPS), Charlotte Attitudes Towards Sleep Scale, and Maslach Burnout Inventory. Higher scores in SHPS were indications of lower sleep hygiene. The gathered data were analyzed in SPSS-21 using descriptive indexes, Pearson’s correlation, and multivariate regression.
Results: Male and female participants accounted for 40.1% (n=61) and 59.9% (n=91) of the population, respectively. The results indicated that sleep hygiene had negative, medium, and significant (0.41-0.47) correlations with attitudes towards sleep (and its subscales) and positive, medium, and significant relationships with job burnout (and its subscales) (0.41-0.66; P<0.01). Moreover, according to the regression calculations, sleep hygiene could be predicted in nurses by the subscales of attitudes towards sleep (negatively) and job burnout (positively) (P<0.01).
Conclusion: The subscales of attitudes towards sleep and job burnout were important predictors of sleep hygiene. Therefore, it is suggested that relevant organizations take into account and consider nurses' sleep issues, so that suitable programs can be designed and performed.
