Objective: Describe the effects related to sleep disorders in nursing professionals with nocturnal labor activity.

Method: A descriptive transversal study with a quantitative approach. There were 184 participants in this research, including 46 nurses, 133 nursing technicians and 05 of them were excluded as losses. We used the chi-square test and Fisher's exact test for the intersection of responses between the categories.

Results: 53.1% of them presented diseases as consequences of the nocturnal labor activity, which were: sleep disorders (26.8%), hypertension (17.3%), spinal problems (16.2%), gastritis (11.7%) and vascular problems (10.1%).

Conclusion: The changes in the circadian cycle, developed by the nocturnal labor activity have a negative impact on health and life of nursing professionals.
