Background and Purpose:

The nursing research on learning differences is currently expanding, suggesting the need for trustful measurements. This study aimed to adapt and cross-culturally validate the Learning Style Inventory.


The first phase involved symmetrical translation and adaptation to the Greek target language. The second phase concerned the psychometric testing.


Internal reliability showed satisfactory alpha values. Kappa coefficients supported the test-retest reliability, and paired t test correlations justified the stability. Factor analysis yielded 2 constructs fitted with theory. The internal validity was also evidenced. The nursing students’ learning style profile was discussed within their educational field and cultural background.


The inventory presented content and construct equivalence to original scales. Certain implications were drawn for nursing supporting the utility of learning styles’ measurements.
