Virtual simulations and serious games are e-learning interventions with the potential to enhance nurses' clinical reasoning. However, distinctions in the design principles of each intervention remain ambiguous. Clarifications are needed to distinguish both interventions and ease the articulation between their design principles and the development of clinical reasoning. In this study, we examine the overlapping and unique design principles of virtual simulations and serious games.
