Simulation is becoming increasingly important in nursing education programs. Ensuring patient safety is the basis of the healthcare system. Nursing students and nurses can improve their skills and abilities in a safe environment through simulation, which helps to ensure patient safety.
The purpose of the review is to provide the best available evidence on the effectiveness of simulation on the self-confidence and satisfaction of nursing students.
A literature review on simulation in nursing education from 2011 to 2021 was conducted. The two databases that were included are Science Direct and Web of Science. The search terms were: simulation, undergraduate nursing students, education, nursing, satisfaction, confidence, self-confidence, Saudi Arabia, and worldwide. In total, there were 106 articles included in the review. Studies with quantitative, qualitative, and mixed-methodology designs were included.
This review revealed that simulation is an effective teaching strategy that helps nursing students gain the necessary self-confidence for future clinical practice. However, the gap between theory and practice; and the transferability to real-world practice weren't covered in the research articles.
Simulation is an effective educational method in nursing education. The results suggest future research studies about the transferability to real clinical practice and simulation's impact on patient outcomes based on the patient perspectives.
