Abstract
AimTo determine the prevalence of depression and the relationship between shift work and depression severity among female nurses in South Korea. BackgroundShift work has been associated with higher risks of depressive symptoms, but there is a dearth of research on nurses, particularly investigating the severity of depressive symptoms. MethodsQuantitative data including survey response from 9789 participants were analysed. Statistical analysis included descriptive, Spearman's correlation and multivariable ordinal logistic regression. ResultsThe numbers of nurses according to the severity of depressive symptoms were 35.2% (n=3445), 38.0% (n=3716), 16.1% (n=1578), 7.6% (n=747) and 3.1% (n=303) for normal, mild, moderate, severely moderate and severe level of depressive symptoms, respectively. After adjusting for sociodemographic and health behavioural factors, nurses who worked shifts had 1.519-times greater odds of experiencing a higher severity of depressive symptoms (OR=1.519, CI=1.380-1.674, P<0.001). ConclusionThis study shows a higher prevalence of depressive symptoms among nurses who worked shifts and suggests that shift work may increase the severity of depressive symptoms among female nurses in South Korea. Implications for nursing managementNursing professionals, managers and health policy makers need to understand the factors influencing depressive symptoms and to use appropriate interventions based on the severity and not just the onset.
