I am a staff nurse at a tertiary hospital. Recently, one department's headnurse resigned. The Chief nurse decided to have a meeting with all the headnurses and ask to give 3 candidates to be OIC for a month and they will choose the new headnurse through evaluation. I was nominated but i am not interested at the position.
Is it safe for me to decline the OIC position? I am not interested. Im a little bothered. Will it be grounds for insubordination if i refuse?
The chief nurse and hr hasn't talked to me regarding the position if i want it. And i heard from a colleague that the hr will be releasing the memo. Is it still okay to decline the position?
Thank you in advance
