Description

This descriptive pilot study assessed the impact of learning style on satisfaction with orientation. Three learning style instruments were sent to all preceptors on inpatient units in two hospitals, and newly hired registered nurses and licensed practical nurses completed the same learning style instruments. Level of satisfaction with the orientation was used as the posttest measure. Matched t tests were compared to see whether the two groups had significant differences. Knowledge of the impact of learning styles on satisfaction can enhance the preceptor experience and perhaps increase retention.
