Eda Ozkara San's additional information

Eda Ozkara San, RN, CHSE, MBA, PhD, is a clinical assistant professor at NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing. She is a nationally certified healthcare simulation educator from the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH) with a clinical background in medical surgical and emergency room nursing. Her scholarship mainly focuses on the use of evidence-based educational strategies, particularly simulated patient (SP) simulation technique, to promote cultural competence in nursing education. In her professional nursing career, she has been actively involved in the development of simulation-based activities in both academic and hospital settings. She has designed, implemented, evaluated, and taught simulation courses at the undergraduate nursing level. As an active member of the International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning (INACSL), the SSH, and Transcultural Nursing Society, she has presented on innovative simulation techniques to promote culturally congruent nursing care and practice and pre-briefing and debriefing strategies in simulation education at local, regional, and national conferences.

Prior to joining the faculty at NYU Meyers, Ozkara San was a clinical associate professor for simulation facilitation at Pace University, College of Health Professions, Lienhard School of Nursing in the NYC campus. She was involved in all day-to-day operations of the Center for Excellence in Healthcare Simulation for the accelerated baccalaureate of science in nursing program, including teaching a variety of skills and simulation sessions; planning, designing, implementing, and evaluating simulation-based learning; and designing and implementing educational programs for faculty/staff development in the use of clinical simulation, debriefing, and assessment.

Among her honors, Ozkara San was inducted as a fellow in the New York Academy of Medicine in 2019, received the Pace University President’s Award for Excellence in Leadership Award in 2018, the College of Health Professions, the NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing Master’s and Post-Master’s Advanced Certificate Programs’ Preceptor Award for the Nursing Education Program in 2017, and the NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing Distinguished Clinical Nursing Faculty Award from the Undergraduate Nursing Student Organization in 2015 in recognition of dedication to teaching excellence.

Ozkara San completed her PhD in nursing science from the City University of New York Graduate Center in 2018 with a focus on the use of patient simulation to enhance cultural competence in nursing education. Her research study was selected for several doctoral research awards from the CUNY Graduate Center, Transcultural Nursing Society, and the National League for Nursing. Ozkara San received an MBA in Healthcare Administration from Bahcesehir University in Istanbul, Turkey, and a BSN from Koc University in Istanbul, Turkey.

Abstract
Abstract
ABSTRACT Background: Simulated patients (SPs) in mental health nursing education provide a unique approach to assist student development in complex assessment skills. Purpose: The purpose of this international multisite study was to evaluate the use of two diverse mental health SP simulation scenarios on nursing students' satisfaction and self-confidence in learning to care for patients with mental health disorders in the United States (n = 70) and Turkey (n = 90). Methods: A multisite cross-sectional study design was used. Outcome measures included the Student Satisfaction and Self-confidence in Learning Scale and the adapted Simulation Effectiveness Tool–Modified. Results were analyzed using independent t tests. Results: While students in the United States reported higher perceived self-confidence and satisfaction in learning, both student populations found the intervention effective to their learning (P < .05). Conclusion: Using SPs in mental health education allow students to practice their assessment skills learned in classroom and transfer them to the clinical area.
