The use of simulation in nursing education is increasing in scope and popularity. Many undergraduate nursing programs have adopted high-fidelity patient simulation as an educational tool. The effect of simulation on teaching and learning is the focus of current research. The aim of this literature review is to synthesize the research findings evaluating simulation specifically in associate degree nursing education. The results of the review identified the following themes: critical thinking, clinical skill performance, knowledge acquisition, student satisfaction, self-confidence, and anxiety. Gaps in the literature are highlighted, implications for nursing education are explored, and recommendations for further research are provided. © 2014 National Organization for Associate Degree Nursing.
