The authors, nursing faculty from a Canadian university, discussed the reasons for and the variety of simulation activities used in nursing education in the context of two learning theories. The theories discussed are Bennerâ€™s model of novice to expert skill acquisition/expertise and Kolbâ€™s experiential learning theory. The article provided discussion/suggestions for the use of simulation to enhance/advance nursing education at each level of expertise in Bennerâ€™s model while also applying Kolbâ€™s theory. The authors concluded that these two theories, as described in their article, could become a beginning point for developing a theoretical framework to support the development and use of simulation in nursing education. The article provided descriptive and theoretical ideas for the development and use of simulation in nursing education.
