Introduction: Clinical simulation was implemented in the training process of the nursing degree in the UCAM. It was integrated within the different clinical Practicum to introduce new teaching methods focused on teaching the students. Objectives: To know the perception and opinion of the students of 2nd and 3rd grade on clinical simulation. To assess students' suggestions for improvement. To identify the major criticisms of the simulation. Methodology: Qualitative study using a semi-structured questionnaire exploratory with printed opinion questions open for self-interview. The target population was students of 2nd and 3rd grade who were enrolled in nursing clinical simulation in 2012. The questionnaire was completed by the students between January and June 2012. The data processing was performed by classifying them according to categories / subcategories and subjecting the speech to a content analysis. Results and discussion: The perception of students is positive, especially when valuing the acquisition of skills (prioritization, strengthening knowledge, confidence, teamwork, communication, error correction, training prior to actual practice). Students show their dissatisfaction with the current assessment system and propose flexibility in attendance. ©Servicio de Publicaciones - Universidad de Murcia.
