Background: Basic nursing education is a practice-based professional career where clinical training is a crucial part in nursing programs. The study was aiming to  assess the perception of nursing students about clinical training in simulation  laboratories compared to training in hospitals  at Karari University in Sudan.

Methods: The research design  was  a descriptive, cross-sectional institutional based study. The study setting was the faculty of nursing sciences in Karari University Sudan. The sample size was 167 students in grades five, six and eight.  Five points` Likert subscales of perception were used for; General training, Training environment, Supervision, Self-confidence and Training outcomes.  Multivariate analysis was carried out for the mean scores of perception subscales and grade levels. The ethical concern and confidentiality were maintained.

Results: Ninety-two  students were in the age group 19 -24 and almost 71 % were females. The nursing students in grade eight perceived  clinical training at hospital significantly different  from grade five, the mean differences  and confidence intervals were as follows: General training (0.38; 95 % CI: 0.11,  0.64), Training environment (0.53; 95 % CI: 0.17,  0.89),    Self-confidence (0.37; 95 % CI: 0.11,  0.63) and Training outcomes (0.49; 95 % CI: 0.19,  0.79).  The perception of Training environment  at  both simulation  laboratories   and hospitals was significantly high  among  students in grade six compared to grade five, (0.32; 95 % CI: 0.03,  0.61) and (0.34; 95 % CI: 0.01,  0.68) respectively.  The perception of  supervision about training at the two settings  was statistically insignificant  among the three grades.

Conclusion: Perception scores about clinical training at hospitals was significantly high among nursing students in high grade level. More researches needed for perception about clinical training at simulation  laboratories
