Implications for practice and research

  • Simulation-based nursing education can enhance nursing education and increase the competence level of practising nurses, which in turn can improve their job satisfaction and, consequently, patient safety and well-being.

  • Further research is required into the specific value and utility of integrating virtual and augmented reality into simulation environments.


There is a growing body of published evidence showing that simulation-based nursing education (SBNE) recreating/replicating real-world clinical …
