This article describes the development of a new simulation-based course designed to remediate the clinical skills of prelicensure nursing students and the multidimensional method used to evaluate this new course. Evaluation of the course was guided by Kirkpatrick levels of training. The Quint Leveled Clinical Competency Tool was used to evaluate students' clinical competencies. Success of the course was found in 3 levels of evaluation.
