Simulation use continues to expand in nursing education, specifically at the undergraduate level. Graduate nursing students can also benefit from simulation activities. Faculty need to consider the use of simulation to help graduate nursing students enrolled in clinical nurse educator programs learn how to address clinical teaching issues. Graduate nurse educator students’ exposure to clinical teaching issues may be limited; therefore, simulation provides a realistic, safe environment for students to practice the development of the teacher role. This manuscript provides ideas for planning, implementation, and suggestions for simulation technology use in the training of nurse educators for their role in clinical teaching.
