Background: Tag Team Patient Safety Simulation (TTPSS) was developed to prepare work-ready nursing graduates in the context of patient safety.

Methods: This descriptive study examined nursing students' (n = 721) satisfaction with the TTPSS and validated the Satisfaction with Patient Safety Simulation Experience Scale (SPSSES).

Results: Students reported higher levels of overall satisfaction with TTPSS. Themes from open-ended responses, Observing and being observed and Learning to respond to unexpected, provided insight to the satisfying components of the learning experience.

Conclusions:The SPSSES is a valid survey instrument, verifying student's satisfaction with this large group simulation approach in preparing them to respond to patient safety issues.
