BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to evaluate peer-to-peer facilitated student led mid-level fidelity simulation experiences. METHODS: Second and third year nursing students (N = 637) were invited to complete a 16-item 6-point Likert scale questionnaire after the simulation experience. RESULTS: Students reported high self-confidence in their nursing skills (M = 4.14, SD = 0.92) and a high level of satisfaction in the learning they received during the peer-to-peer facilitated student led simulation experience (M = 4.42, SD = 0.93). CONCLUSION: Using peer-to-peer teaching strategies during student led simulation experience is an effective approach for ensuring active engagement of all learners during midlevel fidelity group-based simulations and has the potential for broad applicability.
