Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of using simulators on the level of cardiopulmonary resuscitation knowledge and skills acquisition and retention compared with traditional training for nursing students. Methods: Pretest posttest method was used. A test of multiple choice questions and checklist format was used in three phases: baseline, acquisition, and retention phases. Results: The results showed significant differences between the participants of the high fidelity simulators training group and the participants of the traditional static manikin training group on the acquisition of cardiopulmonary resuscitation knowledge and skills. The participants in both groups showed a decrease in their cardiopulmonary resuscitation knowledge and skills after three months of training. However, the retention scores of cardiopulmonary resuscitation knowledge and skills for the participants in the high fidelity simulators group was decreased after three months, still significantly higher than the static manikin training group. Conclusion: This study may assist nursing educators in incorporating the use of high fidelity simulators in cardiopulmonary resuscitation training.
