Let me walk you through the process.

1 - go to apu.edu/library and click "articles and databases"

2 - from the list choose "medicine / nursing" databases

3 - from the list choose one of the bolded databases (best picks by the subject specialist librarian) - I choose 

CINAHL Plus with Full Text

4 - first try some key words - not to find an article, but to find the proper "subjects" - I choose 8 hour 12 hour and got a list of over 10000 articles.

5 - look at the "subjects" under the titles of the articles - subjects are the technical terms used by librarians to describe the topics covered in an article or book. I found "Shiftwork" or "Shift workers" to be subjects.

6 - enter the "subjects" in the search box and change the drop down to "subject"

7 - then use the limiters of language, date, and academic (sometimes called peer reviewed or refereed). I also added "full text" because I didn't know when the speech was.

That brought the list down to a managable 36 articles to choose from. This link will take you to that list of articles. Read the titles. Read the subjects and choose which articles will be most beneficial.
