Learning styles are a major consideration in the education process. Knowledge of an individual’s learning style can be helpful in assisting the individual to be successful in educational undertakings. Nursing is a discipline that requires ongoing learning. One specific area of learning styles is perceptual modality preferences. This study investigated the relationship between the preferred area of clinical practice of registered nurses and their preferred perceptual modality preference. The research questions addressed in this study were (1) What, if any is the relationship between the preferred area of clinical practice of registered nurses and their preferred perceptual modality?; (2) What is the impact of age on the preferred perceptual modality?; (3) What is the impact of experience on the preferred perceptual modality?
