Fatigue and recovery have been associated with health, safety, and performance outcomes in hospital nurses. There is a growing emphasis on fatigue risk management and health promotion programs to support nurses and promote quality in hospitals. However, little is known about the relationships between fatigue and wellness measures in nurses. This study used a tree-based classification method to identify associations between self-reported fatigue, recovery and wellness measures in a survey study of hospital nurses. Significant relationships between multiple wellness measures and acute fatigue, chronic fatigue, and intershift recovery levels were identified. Specifically, the findings include critical levels of wellness measures where fatigue and recovery change. These findings have implications for ongoing efforts to develop effective fatigue management programs in this population.
