A scoping review will be completed to investigate the research question: What learning outcomes have been reported in nurses participating in simulation assigned to the observer role? Introduction: Simulation-based learning experiences (SBLE) are being utilized more frequently to support learning with increasing numbers of nurses. Despite SBLE becoming more popular, resources and manikin availability are not meeting the demand. Programs are placing more participants in observational roles without knowing what learning can be expected. Inclusion criteria: Studies will be considered if they investigated learning outcomes of any nursing population placed in an observational role in simulation. Methods: The scoping review strategy established by JBI will be followed. This review includes studies that focus on undergraduate, graduate, and practicing nurses participating in the observer role in simulation. © 2020 Joanna Briggs Institute.
