Which job offer do I choose?

  1. 0
    I am a new grad and have been offered a job at 3 different facilities. 1 is a hospital (part-time with the option to purchase benefits and a pension or casual with no benefits or pension and would pay 29.55/hr. for each type and it would be shift work, 8 or 12 hours. 2 is a LTC facility (2 month full time interm, parttime perm or casual perm) with similar pay to the hospital because they are through the same place but the LTC has better benefits and pension because they go through a different company. They still do all skills minus 8IV and blood transfusions. 3 is a community job involving traveling to several first nations communities and involves a lot of travel time and staying the night 3 times a month occasionally. It is Mon - Fri from 7-3 with weekends off, 14 payed stats, 2 weeks off every Christmas, 3weeks payed vacation starting and the wage is almost $40. I get a company vehicle and full benefits plus pension but no union. No kids for another 5 years. Husband currently works Mon -Fri with no benefits or pension but is soon going to be working 2 weeks on 1 week off with a good pension and benefits. Which should I choose as a new grad who loves geriatrics, wound care, drawing blood injections and doesn't care so much for IVs
