Amidst the COVID-19 response, the healthcare system in the Philippines has been reportedly overwhelmed, affecting the healthcare providers significantly, especially nurses who are in the forefront of battling the pandemic. Areas in the NCR+ bubble currently have the highest number of cases combined in the country, one of which is the province of Cavite. As described, insufficient nurses, being the primary frontliners, compensate for

the hefty demands of the elevated number of patients suffering from COVID- 19. Thus, this study examines the correlation between the levels of sleep

deprivation and work productivity among nurses in three classifications, namely Contextual Information (CI), Work Approach (WA), and Interpersonal Relationship (IR). The data were measured by the administration of two adapted questionnaires such as the Profiling Questionnaire (PQ) which assesses the levels of sleep deprivation and the Work Productivity Assessment Questionnaire (WPAQ) which evaluates the work productivity condition of the 100 selected nurses from hospitals of Cavite. Major findings suggest that there is no correlation between sleep deprivation and both CI and WA dimensions of work productivity that mainly include self-image and professional skills, respectively; juxtaposed to IR that mainly comprises teamwork, leadership, and communication, which has the only significant and the highest relationship with sleep deprivation, amounting to a critical value of 11.788, deriving the p-value = 0.003, that indicates a highly significant correlation. The study concluded that the presence of sleep deprivation consequently obstructs effective interpersonal communication among nurses.
