Love2BePAC Posted August 16, 2013 Share Posted August 16, 2013 Hi everyone! I have a question for working moms (or dads). Have you found it better to work fewer, but longer shifts or more, but shorter shifts? For example, I currently work in FP 5-6 days per week, averaging 5-7 hour days. My total weekly hours are 34-38 hours. l would be taking call every other weekend, which is generally very light. I have a job offer for four 10-hour shifts at a preop clinic (7a-5p, generally more than enough time to eat during the day so no one leaves for lunch). No holidays/call, low-stress, etc. (And best benefits in the state...I used to work at this specific university hospital, though that's not really relevant here). Any opinions on longer vs shorter shifts with kids (and if age matters, mine are almost 5 years old and 18 months old)? Thanks, Sheryl Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
