Submit Manuscript | simulation as it provides a rich learning environment for the development of practice competencies. The goal of simulation is to replicate patient care scenarios in a realistic environment for the purpose of feedback, self-reflection, and assessment. Properly conducted simulation creates an ideal educational environment because learning activities can be made to be predictable, consistent, standardized, and reproducible. With all these overwhelming

In some situations, simulation may not be the best method for teaching adult learners. Simulation, because of the complexity involved can be highly stressful for some learners. Abstract Aim: The aim of this capstone project was to demonstrate benefit of the Ongoing Simulation Debriefing Technique on lowering anxiety levels amongst those participating in simulation activities. Ongoing Simulation Debriefing Technique is a method by which simulation participants, who are viewing simulations, are guided by a knowledgeable debriefer while the simulation is occurring.
