A non-experimental descriptive research design was used. Respondents were the nursing students and were chosen using non-probability sampling technique. The researchers used the adopted modified questionnaire survey forms, 15 items in the questionnaire were adopted from the undergraduate theses entitled, “the Learning Styles of Bachelor of Sciences in Nursing Students of De La Salle Health Sciences Institute Batch 2006 (Bautista K. Et al., 2006) then all the remaining questions were originally from Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences theory (Smith M., 2008). Data was analysed using frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, t-test, Analysis of Variance (ANOVA), and Cronbach’s Alpha. Majority of the respondents were middle adolescents, living in a nuclear type of family structure, female, home-based residency, Roman Catholic, with 40,001 and above monthly income and currently fourth year college students. Overall, intrapersonal and bodily-kinesthetic were the learning styles predominantly used by nursing students, followed by the spatial-visual, existential and verbal-linguistidc learning styles. There was no evidence that suggested that the learning styles of the respondents were influenced by age, family structure, gender, place of residency, religion, socio-economic status, and year level.
