16 hours is WAY to long of a shift in any capacity - you have to take into consideration the drive time to/from work whcih would most likely turn 16 days into 17 or more depending on distance..you also need to consider not if but when you will be running late at work for some reason - because it will happen at both places at some point & that will add to the length of your day. That being said..one position is obviously working with new mothers/babies, the other gerontology..ask yourself which of those populations most interest you? Also, FT in a hospital setting is usually 3 12's a week - not 3 one week and 4 the next - that would be considered overtime - at least at the hospitals around here- so you may want to ask about that..also, compare benefits between the two places..normally they are better in a hospital. Also, L&D jobs for new grads are difficult to find - at least where I live while LTC are always hiring. I personally would not work a 16 hour shift for any job. Way too long.
