This article presents the experience of Nursing internship, in which it was possible to do an educational intervention related to sexual education. The intervention was done with adolescents of a public school located in the area of a health centre in the city of Belo Horizonte, Brazil. The work was based on the participative methodology, using workshops and group dynamics. It was possible to identify that the most frequent doubts were related to puberty and beginning of sexuality. Workshops were done with 40 adolescents between the ages of 11 and 13, making it possible to provide information about health care. It is possible to conclude that the role of the Nurse is very important in the multidisciplinary actions related to health promotion, and this Field has still to be exploited in the health practices of primary attention.
