Students? perception of their own clinical competence influence the ease with which they integrate into the role of a registered nurse upon graduation. The extent to which the educational process can strengthen students? perception of their own clinical ability will affect the speed with which new graduates will be able to function effectively in hospital settings.   This presentation describes themes inherent in the perceptions of associate degree and baccalaureate nursing students regarding their own clinical competence before and after they participated in high fidelity patient simulation, using evidence-based clinical scenarios.  First and second year baccalaureate and associate degree students completed a portion of their clinical experience in a Regional Simulation Center, supported through a partnership of both nursing programs and a regional medical center.  Students had an opportunity to respond to the evidence-based patient scenarios programmed into the patient simulators.  The goal of these clinical assignments was to encourage the critical thinking skills of the various levels of students, as well as develop appropriate psycho-motor patient care skills.  As part of a larger quantitative study, a sample of students assigned to the simulation center were chosen to participate in focus groups, designed to elicit information about the students? perceived clinical competence.  The presentation describes the students? experience in the simulation center and their perceptions before and after participating in the simulation.  Recommendations for the use of evidenced-based simulations to strengthen the students? perception of their own competence was discussed.
