The purpose of this study was to analyze and clarify the concept of psychological safety in nursing simulation education so that it can contribute to learning environment that guarantee psychological safety for nursing students. Using Walker & Avant's concept analysis framework, 15 research articles about psychology safety were included in this study. There were four definable attributes of psychological safety: 1) comfortable state feeling or status; 2) State that can perform without fear; 3) Sense of trust toward the organization; and 4) Feeling that there will be no harm to oneself. When antecedents, attributes, and consequences of psychological safety is considered when shaping simulation education environment, the learning effect for nursing students is expected to be maximized.
