Background: Many benefits of using the simulation method in nursing education have been reported.
Aim: The study was conducted to determine the effect of simulation method on nursing students’ knowledge,
satisfaction and self-confidence levels in learning.
Methodology: 61 students were randomly assigned to the experimental and control groups. The effect of
simulation about diabetes and hypoglycemia on students' knowledge, satisfaction and self-confidence levels in
learning was evaluated.
Results: No significant difference was found between the diabetes and hypoglycemia knowledge pretest mean
scores of the experimental and control groups (p>0,05). Diabetes and hypoglycemia knowledge post-test and 1st
month scores of the experimental group were statistically significantly higher than the control group (p=0,00;
Conclusions: Satisfaction and self-confidence levels of those who received education with simulation were
high. Using simulation in nursing education increased students' knowledge, satisfaction and self-confidence
