The author, coordinator learning laboratories and faculty of nursing at University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada reviewed the healthcare literature published between 2003 and 2007 for articles on the effectiveness of simulation as a teaching tool. Directed towards healthcare educators, the author used very specific inclusion and exclusion criteria leaving 23 articles that met the criteria. According to the authorâ€™s research, the studies provided evidence that the use of simulation increased studentsâ€™ clinical skills. The author noted that an unexpected discovery of the review was the fact that nursing studies included both quantitative and qualitative research whereas studies in medicine explored only the quantitative aspect. The review was well researched with very specific criteria for inclusion and exclusion. Even though the review only included studies between 2003 and 2007, it provides a very thorough review of the available studies at the time.
