We studied 45 students of the nursing degree: 28.8% of men and 71.1% of women. They were between 19 and 40 years old (M = 26.48; SD = 6.86). The sample size calculation for the present research with a 14% margin of error and 95% confidence level was 40 subjects. The inclusion criteria were that participants were nurse degree students. Exclusion criteria were the presence of any medical condition or injury at the moment of the evaluation and the intake of any medicine, drug, dietary supplement, stimulants, or other ergogenic aids 24 h prior to the evaluation.

The whole procedure was done following the Declaration of Helsinki (revised in Brazil, 2013) and approved by the ethics committee of the university. The data were collected anonymously. Before starting the study, all participants were informed about the process to be carried out and informed of the right to withdraw from the research project at any time. To collect this signed informed consent, a live information session was organized with all students who could be part of the study. They were explained in detail the study objectives, that it was voluntary, and that they could withdraw at any time. In addition, the assessment methodology and instruments of the study were presented, and students were able to interact with them and test them. Once everything was explained, the students who wanted to participate signed the document and accepted to participate voluntarily. All students participating in the project stated that they had not faced a clinical simulation before. In addition, they had not been evaluated with this methodology either. Then, they presented the same experience in clinical sessions, so the acquisition of skills was done under the same conditions.
