Abstract

Background: Debriefing represents the reflection phase of the simulation process, in which feelings are resolved and learning is solidified, but the nursing student experience during debriefing is largely unknown.

Method: The Debriefing Experience Scale was developed from debriefing literature and expert opinion. This scale was used in 2 research studies and refined through the use of factor analysis.

Results: The resulting scale, divided into 4 subscales, consists of 20 items defining the nursing student debriefing experience.

Conclusions: The Debriefing Experience Scale has the potential to assist in providing further insight.
