Simulation education imitates real life in a safe environment. Students can learn and practice skills without harm to a patient through simulation education. This article?s purpose is to determine the effects of simulation on student?s clinical competency and self-confidence. CINAHL was used to review 26 studies using either low or high-fidelity simulation (HFS) between the years, 2005-2014. Likert-type scales, qualitative and quantitative data, questionnaires, and self-evaluations were used to determine the effects of simulation on a student?s perceived confidence and student?s competence. The studies reveal that simulation used as an adjunct to traditional education indeed improves competency confidence. More longitudinal studies are needed to track progress over time as well as more random control studies to reduce bias. It will also be beneficial to study when simulation should be introduced.
