Simulation is an active learning methodology being used in hospitals to improve patient care.  Results of this systematic review that focused on acute care nurse simulation training and patient safety outcomes indicate that simulation training can be effective for improving patient safety outcomes in this context; the authors note, however, that additional high–quality research is needed to support this field.
