Abstract

Learning style is the characteristic method of gaining knowledge, skill, or attitudes through study or experiences (James, D’Armore, & Thomas, 2011). Learning style addresses the approach to learning and the manner that individual learns best. Learning style refers to the distinctive method of individuals interacting with the environment. Nurses function in a challenging environment where they are required to utilize various methods of learning to process, integrate, and dissimilate information when appropriate. It is important for first-semester nursing students to recognize their learning style and be able to recall knowledge gained during the clinical and classroom environment.
