Simulation in nursing practice has emerged in the past decade as an effective teaching strategy, citing improvements in skill acquisition and confidence levels, however little is known regarding the impact upon academic achievement. The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that the incorporation of simulated learning activities into traditional nursing pedagogy would have a positive effect upon students’ academic achievement and perception upon transitioning into actual clinical settings. Using a quasi-experimental research design with a sequential multi-group approach, this study explored the incorporation of simulated learning activities into traditional nursing pedagogy as a means of improving students’ academic achievement and confidence upon transitioning into actual clinical settings. Fifty, fourth-semester students from two different semesters was used to collect data generated from the mean scores of four module exams that reflected nursing content knowledge. The findings of this study suggest that the incorporation of simulated learning into traditional curricula provides a more student-centered approach toward enhancing academic achievement and confidence among nursing students.
