Sleep deprivation is a problematic issue that exists throughout the entire human population and affects all age groups across the millennium. Lack of sleep can cause serious health issues, academic problems, and mistakes in the work place. It is imperative that individuals get enough sleep to be able to function mentally and physically throughout the day. Sleep is an essential part of human nature and is crucial for the brain and body systems to rest and regenerate. This enables college students, nurses, health care students, physicians, and surgeons to function safely in their work environment, at school, or at home. This paper will explore sleep deprivation among college students, nurses, residents/interns, physicians, and surgeons. Sleep deprivation will also be explored as to how it relates to automobile accidents, medical problems, mistakes in the work place, medication errors, and poor student functioning in the classroom setting due to lack of sleep.
