This article shows how simulation can be modified and adapted to benefit Higher Education Institutes (HEIs) in a variety of situations. These situations include the engagement of Service Users and moulage to ensure skill enhancement so the very best student experience can be harnessed empowering and supporting students in learning, as a means to achieving their potential. This article describes a unique collaboration between one Higher Education Institute and Service Users (SUs), who have worked together in engaging in simulation activities in partnership. The development of simulation using Service Users is at the heart of developing student nurse education and recruitment. It has created communities of practice working across the traditional departmental boundaries to create innovative and creative learning opportunities for students. This collaboration links to the political imperative to improve the education of the health and social care sector, highlights the integration of skills development to theory, focuses on person-centred care and demonstrates how this HEI is producing a compassionate and caring workforce.
