Interest in simulation as a teaching and evaluation strategy in nursing education continues to grow. Mirroring this growth, we have seen a proliferation of instruments designed to evaluate simulation participant performance. This article describes two frameworks for categorizing simulation evaluation strategies and provides a review of recent simulation evaluation instruments. The review focuses on four instruments that have been used extensively in the literature, objective structured clinical examinations (OSCE's) including four OSCE instruments, and an extensive list of new instruments for simulation evaluation.
