An important element of nursing students’ learning experience is the way they gain confidence and competence in delivering care to patients and service users.

As with many universities, at the University of the West of England some of these skills are taught through simulation exercises. This involves working in a simulation suite that mimics the reality of a hospital ward or an individual’s home. Students learn how to manage nursing care in a safe environment
