It is not enough to know about health and illness, nor is it enough to know how to perform nursing actions. Knowing about and knowing how must be coupled with knowing when and which nursing actions should take place. Simulation pedagogy offers opportunities for both cognitive and psychomotor practice and provides a vehicle to demonstrate clinical nursing judgment and situated cognition.
