Learning style assessment instruments are often used in organizations to identify learner’s preference and facilitate the exchange of information during the orientation process. Literature validates orientees learn more quickly and easily when they are able to use their learning preference. All new employees at the study hospital complete the Learning Style Self-Assessment instrument during New Hire Orientation. Orientees and nurse preceptors are instructed to utilize assessment results during orientation. Orientees at the study hospital complete an evaluation of their orientation experience. Results of this evaluation confirmed utilization of the orientee’s preferred learning style. However, anecdotal feedback from nurse preceptors contradicted the evaluation results. The completed study determined the low frequency with which nurse preceptors were using the Learning Style Self-Assessment during orientation. Results also revealed that as nursing, organization and preceptor experience increased, there was less use of orientee's learning style preference. Conclusions were drawn that practiced preceptors draw upon their experiences and relevance to drive their facilitation of orientation, rather than using the orientees learning style. As a result of the research, the study hospital will explore reliable and valid learning style assessment instruments in partnership with preceptors to provide a meaningful learning experience.
