Background: The paper reports findings of a study examining how the construction of simulated spaces influences undergraduate nursing studentsí preparedness for practice.
Methods: A descriptive exploratory design comprising field observation, group interviews and focus groups elicited data which was analysed thematically.
Results: The construction of simulation space influences how students respond to clinical contexts by highlighting tacitly held values, strengthening critical thinking and promoting confidence.
Conclusions: Simulation space is a physical reflection of the dominant values underpinning nursing curricula. Its design and construction can enhance studentsí preparedness for practice and is a critical feature of contemporary nurse education curricula.
