Background: Simulation has been widely adopted in nursing education, while it is difficult to evaluate the quality of simulation. AHP-Fuzzy comprehensive evaluation could be an effective method based on one a comprehensive and scientific evaluation Index system. Objectives: To evaluate the quality of simulation teaching in ⟨Fundamental Nursing Curriculum⟩ with fuzzy comprehensive method, and to provide a scientific evaluation method for the improvement of simulation teaching. Design: It is a phenomenological research study. Settings: The study was mainly conducted in one university in China. Participants: 94 second-year nursing students participated in this study. Methods: The grade 2015 nursing undergraduate students in Peking university school of nursing as the evaluation subjects were to evaluate the simulation teaching quality on ⟨Fundamental Nursing Curriculum⟩, Fuzzy Comprehensive Evaluation method was used. Results: The quality score is 73.55–100 (91.71 ± 6.98) points of 94 students. According to the result of fuzzy comprehensive evaluation, the simulation teaching quality belonging to the “excellent, good, moderate, poor, very poor” of membership degree are respectively “0.6794, 0.2500, 0.00640, 0.0039, 0.0028”, and by maximum membership degree of effective inspection, calculate ɑ = 2.3965, 1 ≤ ɑ < + ∞. Conclusions: The application of simulation teaching in ⟨Fundamental Nursing Curriculum⟩ proves high quality. The fuzzy comprehensive evaluation combining subjective evaluation and objective evaluation proves to be a scientific and feasible methodology in nursing education.
