Simulation in nursing education has seen significant growth over the last decade. Research has shown that simulation is a useful teaching methodology. In addition, simulation has the ability to enhance active student learning and to move nurse educators beyond the traditional role of educator. Simulation can facilitate students in becoming more active participants in their own learning and can provide the vehicle to connect theory and the practice environment.
