Introduction: Simulation-based learning is an excellent alternative to teaching and learning in nursing. The study aimed to assess student satisfaction with simulation-based learning and identify associated factors.
Materials and Methods: A cross-sectional study in an academic setting was conducted on 26 May 2022. Satisfaction was measured using a questionnaire with five dimensions and 32 items developed according to the Kirkpatrick model. Linear regressions were used to identify factors associated with student satisfaction with simulation-based learning.
Results: Student satisfaction towards simulation-based learning exceeded 80% for all items. The latter increases when students felt psychologically safe (t=3.014; p=0.004). Students who perceived that the methods their teachers taught to demonstrate skills were appropriate for their learning styles had increased their satisfaction (t=7.781; p<0.01).

Conclusions: The psychological safety of students during the demonstration of skills and the adequacy of teaching methods to student’s learning styles were factors statistically associated with student satisfaction with simulation-based learning.
