Abstract: Background nursing professors lack of attention to students learning style may lead to academic failure. The research results on the relationship between students learning style and academic achievement are contradictory. Therefore, this study aims to explore the relationship between VARK learning style and academic achievement of virtual nursing students. method. In this cross-sectional study, 237 virtual nursing students were included in the study by convenient sampling. VARK learning style questionnaire was used for data collection. The academic achievement is determined based on the average score (GPA) of the previous semester. According to the average score of students, they are divided into two groups, including strong (GPA)   ≥ 15) and weak (GPA   ≤ 14.99) Results. In both strong and weak groups, most of the subjects were unimodal (with a frequency of 92.9 and 78.5 , respectively), and the rest were multimodal. The most common learning styles in strong and weak students were kinesthetic (57.1 ) and auditory (37.2 ), respectively. The results of chi-square test did not show statistically significant differences between learning styles and academic performance of strong and weak students. Conclusion. There was no significant relationship between the dominant learning styles and academic performance of strong and weak students. However, nursing professors need to adapt their teaching methods to the students’ learning styles. More studies are recommended to shed more light on this area of research.
