Main Article Content
Nursing education is strategically positioned to prepare nursing students in attaining management and leadership skills necessary for future professional nursing roles. This review appraised and synthesized outcomes of using simulation in pre-licensure nursing management and leadership courses within the last 10 years. This is an integrative review of original articles published within the last 10 years. Four (PsychINFO, CINAHL, PubMed, and SCOPUS) bibliographic databases were searched to identify relevant articles using the following terms: management, leadership, simulation, nurse education, and student. Ten (10) articles were included in the review. Four essential themes were identified from the content analysis: acquisition of or understanding of delegation, enhanced teamwork or collaboration capacities, improved decision-making and problem solving skills, and increased communication skills. Incorporation of simulation in nursing management and leadership courses has the potential to enhance nursing students’ delegation skills, problem solving capacities, skills in making decisions, and communication and teamwork skills.
