If you use debriefing with simulation, learn how these authors used debriefing at the end of a laboratory skills class. The authors examined the cognitive, affective, and social learning outcomes of debriefing sessions. Survey questionnaires were administered to 378 prelicensure nursing students after their nursing skills laboratory class that included a debriefing session. Most students either agreed or strongly agreed that debriefing facilitated the discussion about their lab experience and reflection on learning.
