Abstract

This integrative review summarized the findings from 19 studies about the known effects of simulation on nursing students' preparation for delivery of palliative care (PC), identified gaps in the literature, and provided directions for future research. Three mixed method studies, 10 quantitative studies, and 6 qualitative studies were reviewed. The outcomes support PC simulation in developing nursing student competence by providing meaning and context to the care they deliver to seriously ill patients. Future investigations examining the relationships between PC simulation, students' role in simulation, and effects on student knowledge, self-awareness, and clinical performance in providing PC are warranted.
