Any jump, regardless of number, takes approximately one week (150 to 175 hours).
Ships in jump space are untouchable and cannot communicate with other ships or stations.
Although jumps are usually made at low velocities, the speed and direction which a ship held prior to jump is retained when it returns to normal space.

Because of the delicacy of jump drives, most ships perform maintenance operations on their drives after every jump.
It is possible for a ship to make another jump almost immediately (within an hour) after returning to normal space, but standard procedures call for at least a 16 hour wait to allow cursory drive checks and some recharging.
175 + 16 = 191 hours

If a starship has insufficient Maneuver drive power to reach a destination within 192 hours (8 days) it will usually be faster to use the Jump drive to get there than relying on the Maneuver drive for the trip.
Space Anomalies can affect navigation through normal and/or jump space, altering the conditions underlying this assumption.
