    If you have an injury that prevents you from manually doing much (arm related), can you still go on placement? I can still observe etc just not physically help with anything that requires me to use my right arm

    Have you seen occupational health?
    Your placement you're expected to be involved in nursing tasks as well as observations.
    If occupational health deem you as fit for your placement area then it may not be an issue.
    Could depend on where you will be.
    And for the safety of the patients and your colleagues etc too.

    Placements tend to be very hands on, so probably not. If it is for just one placement then you might be able to switch the placements around so that you get allocated to a mental health for that period, but that's not very likely as a lot of planning goes into finding placements.

    As the others have said, you are expected to be hands-on with patients, this means moving and turning, patslides, washing and bathing etc.

    Definitely speak to your education champion and occupational health to discuss. If it's a long-term injury they should be able to help you get around it.
