The use of interactive education methods in nursing education has been increasing, and its reflection on clinical setting has been tried to be more visible. Hybrid simulation, which is one of the simulation methods, has important effects on nursing education. In this paper, it is aimed to offer a definition of hybrid simulation and its implementation examples. In the literature, there is limited number of studies based on hybrid simulation method. Therefore, it is important to fill this gap in order to discuss the importance and use of hybrid simulation method.
