Abstract

Nursing professional development practitioners are encouraged to consider incorporating preferred learning styles into professional development programs. However, conclusive evidence about preferred learning styles does not exist. This study describes the preferred learning styles of nursing staff. Results showed that learning style preferences existed and were correlated with satisfaction, years of experience, and gender. The results can be used to plan and deliver professional development opportunities that are engaging and promote retention of learning.
