How simulation in nursing training works

Our members are increasingly training nurses and allied health professionals by providing cutting-edge simulation-based education. Working with actors, hi-tech mannikins and virtual reality headsets, simulation methods provide students with the opportunity to practice clinical and practical skills through various experiential scenarios.

Our videos below explain how simulation works, the benefits for students and how it can relieve pressures on the NHS.

See more of our members’ facilities on our Future of the NHS Workforce page.
