A considerable part of nursing students’ training takes place in simulation laboratories where real-life clinical situations are replicated through guided learning experiences. The subjective experience of stress and anxiety can significantly reduce the quality of this teaching and learning experience. Mindfulness meditation is a technique that helps students develop a variety of skills that could be usefully and successfully employed in their personal and professional life. This presentation aims at illustrating the preliminary results of a mindfulness meditation programme on metacognitive and social affective learning skills and anxiety in a group of students managing a simulated deteriorating patient.
