||The influence of the shift work schedule on sleep duration and social life was determined by conducting a questionnaire survey among 134 nurses in various hospitals in Austria. The aim of the study was to assess possible benefits of flexible shift schedule arrangements compared to traditional 12-hour day or night shift and 8-hour 3-shift schedules. Nurses with flexible shift schedule reported less interference with family obligations and leisure time activities and higher sleep duration and quality. They were on average also more satisfied with their schedule. In both groups with fixed schedules, a significant correlation between interference with family and leisure activities and sleep was observed.
