This study was conducted to examine the effects of simulation-based education (SBE) on nursing students' clinical performance, knowledge, and learner satisfaction in nursing care for stroke patients. The randomized controlled study involved 61 students who were enrolled in a geriatric nursing education course for a major at S university. Students in the simulation group received stroke patient care training by using a high-fidelity simulator, while those in the control group participated only in lectures. Collected data were analyzed using Chi-square, t-test, and independent t-test with the SPSS 24.0 for Windows program. The experimental group which had SIM-PBL showed significantly higher knowledge (t = 16.152, p< .001), learner satisfaction (t =7.358, p<.001), and clinical performance ability (t = 5.252, p <.001) for stroke patient care, compared with the control group. The results suggest that SIM-PBL is an effective teaching method to increase knowledge and clinical performance ability for nursing students. Therefore, it is necessary to develop simulation-based educational programs for clinical practicum, while further study is needed to determine the effects of diverse debriefing methods on student learning findings.
