Introduction: Simulation training is a learning tool that allows reproducing clinical situations for prac-tice and improvement of technical and non-techni-cal skills. Objetive: To analyze the benefits of simulation in nursing students, in the technique of insertion of peripheral vascular catheters (PVC). Methods: A bibliographic review was carried out that could give an answer to the topic to be studied. To this end, a search of the databases was carried out: Medline, Cinahl, Web of Sciencie and Scopus. This search was conducted in February and March 2019. Results: 2 systematic reviews and 25 original articles were found. Only 7 original articles and no systematic review met the eligibility criteria. As a result, simulation is evidenced as a safe practice, with the possibility of repetition without harming others, leading to a decrease in fear and anxiety in students when performing the technique (which encourages an increase in selfconfidence). All this results in an improvement in practice and subse-quent clinical experience. Conclusion: The simulation in the insertion of PVC produces an improvement of this ability due to the repetition of the technique on demand, the increase of self-confidence and the decrease of the anxiety of the nursing students. Evaluation and debriefing also constitute a beneficial element for the improvement of ability. However, more studies in this field are needed to demonstrate these benefits.
