© 2015 Australian College of Nursing Ltd Simulation is recognised as a safe and effective way to teach nursing. Mask-Ed™ is a new and innovative simulation technique. It involves the use of a masked educator who portrays an authentic character with a history that serves as a platform for learning and teaching. This technique has been introduced in several nursing curricula throughout Australia, the United Kingdom, the United States of America and New Zealand. While student feedback remains positive, little is known about the effectiveness of the technique, which includes using silicone props, including masks in preparing students for clinical practice. Mask-Ed™ simulation has been shown to increase the students’ feelings of readiness for clinical practice, and reduced some of their fear and apprehension. This paper explores the use of Mask-Ed™ as a valuable tool in teaching both the art and science of nursing.
