Students’ favorites and styles practiced in their learning process, play a vital role in educational consequences and these favorites are conveyed into different learning styles. Some students find that their learning style may be a blend of two or three styles. Preference of learning styles varies among students of different gender, culture, environment and etc. Hence it is important to perform a learning style inventory before planning and implementing teaching and learning methods. This study employed a descriptive and exploratory design with a sample size of 1192 undergraduate nursing students from selected Colleges of Nursing at different locations in India. Total enumerative sampling technique was adopted for this research study. A self administered questionnaire on VAK learning style indicators was used for collecting data. Kinesthetic style of learning was the most preferred learning style among the nursing students. At the same time preference of learning style varied among UG nursing students at different locations and different academic year of study. Teaching methods can be planned, based on the individual variation in preference of learning styles.
