Purpose: The aim of this study was to develop an terminal care simulation scenario for baccalaureate nursing students, and evaluate the effectiveness of the scenario by comparing flowexperiential and self-confidence score.

Method: Eligible students were randomly assigned to either an experimental group (n = 13) or control group (n = 12). The evaluation of terminal care scenario was conducted by randomized controlled trial using a flow-experiential checklist and five-point Likert scale to rate student selfconfidence.

Results: After the terminal care simulation, the experimental group showed a statically significant increase in mean score of flow-experience checklist. The self-confidence in providing terminal care also significantly increased in the experimental group.

Conclusion: These findings suggest that terminal care simulation scenario developed is wellbalanced, with a reasonable quantity of information at a suitably challenging level. Such simulations may be a useful way to help students to learn about terminal care more effectively.
