Objective: To evaluate the "satisfaction" and "self-confidence" constructs in nursing students who underwent simulated clinical experiences in semiology and semiotechnique disciplines.

Most were more satisfied (overall average = 4.18) than self-confident (overall average = 4.12). The Spearman correlation test identified a significant and positive association between the "satisfaction" and "self-confidence" constructs. Conclusion: Students feel self-confident and satisfied with the use of simulation as an active teaching-learning methodology, highlighting that the higher the satisfaction level, the greater the student's self-confidence.
