Results: The types of simulations and simulators are characterized by the degree of organization of landscape and simulator technology: low, medium and high fidelity. These degrees of fidelity enable the development of skills and abilities in students in the context of health education.


 Conclusion: Considering the scope and possibilities of its use, the simulation can be a positive tool in health education process.
