COVID 19 UPDATE FOR STUDENTS ATTENDING PLACEMENT IN ALL HEALTHCARE FACILITIES IN QUEENSLAND:
Students attending placements in Queensland Health facilities must continue to follow the directions on the Queensland Health website Preparing for your Clinical placement.
Students are classified as healthcare workers and can follow the same directives as healthcare staff. Queensland Health requires that employees, or prospective employees, be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and maintain that vaccine protection (through any relevant booster doses). This has been a mandated requirement since September 2021.
Further information on accessing proof of your COVID-19 vaccination status is available on the QH webpage Proof of COVID-19 vaccination
Information on entering or returning to placement in a high-rise workplace setting is available on the QH webpage Visiting high-risk settings.

Arranging your placement
This guide will assist you to organise your professional experience placement. However, you may be required to fulfil additional requirements depending on where your placement will occur (e.g. a national Working with Children Check, current resuscitation certification, current vaccinations). Please confirm with a representative from the placement facility what their specific requirements are, and ensure you meet these requirements prior to beginning your placement.
