With all due respect and not to burst your bubble, based on your description earlier in the thread I would not say you're actually in the running for a position that doesn't even currently exist except for 10 months from now, nor would I personally be making any decisions based on this non-existent position that may or may not open up in 10 months.
So many things could go wrong with this magic position that is opening up in 10 months: If it is opening up because someone else is leaving then they could decide they aren't going to leave; the powers that be could decide it isn't in the budget to open the position in 10 months; more qualified nurses than you may apply and get the position (rightfully so).
My point isn't to be a Negative Nancy but rather to be realistic. MANY of us in our careers have been told by managers that they want us to apply for a position and then when it comes down to it, we don't get that position for whatever reason. Focus on your options now that exist in present time and then if, 10 months from now, you find yourself being offered that position you can decide at that point what the best move is.
