Abstract: Background: High-fidelity simulation is being considered as a suitable environment for
imparting the skills needed to deal with end-of-life (EOL) situations. The objective was to evaluate
an EOL simulation project that introduced communication skills to nursing students who had not
yet begun their training in real healthcare environments. Methods: A sequential approach was used.
The ?questionnaire for the evaluation of the end-of-life project? was employed. Results: A total of
130 students participated. Increasing the time spent in high-fidelity simulation significantly favored
the exploration of feelings and fears regarding EOL (t = ?2.37, p = 0.019), encouraged dialogue
(t = ?2.23, p = 0.028) and increased the acquisition of communication skills (t = ?2.32, p = 0.022).
Conclusions: High-fidelity simulation promotes communication skills related to EOL in novice
