Methods. We conducted a qualitative study approach with bottom-up narrative that used the tool of storytelling. In the teaching of Tutorial Teaching at the Specialistic Degree of Science in Nursing and Midwifery of Turin has been used a narrative tool to invite participants to explore the experiences related to their work education and training. Results. The narratives written by the students were twenty-five. The main plot is kind of epic-romantic: after a difficult start in which subjects feel inadequate to convey the teachings and values, they manage to find the right communication channel to deal with the obstacle winning spirit; aware that the path will be marked by many challenges but with mutual support, acts of kindness, selflessness and sharing, will be able to recognize themselves within an organizational context, to keep their memory and to share their knowledge. Conclusions. The narrative tool, through the memories, promotes the connection on an emotional level among students; attributing meaning to events and linking them to their own experience, with its successes and failures, students reinforce the value of reciprocity and reshape the contours of his new life in the contexts in which they live.
