This study examined the influence of high-fidelity simulation (HFS) training on baccalaureate nursing students’ sense of efficacy for both patient communication and physical care. Juniors in the second semester completed the Nursing Student Self-Efficacy Scale (NSSES) before experiencing HFS training and after eight weeks of twice weekly simulation sessions. Results of the study support the assumption that HFS training may be a valuable tool for increasing nursing students’ efficacy for aspects of clinical practice.
