Santa Rosa Labyrinth
The Santa Rosa Labyrinth located at the Tanner Health System School of Nursing has seven circuits divided into four quadrants. The space on the fourth circuit lane is called the heart space and is designed to hold symbols of personal significance to the person. Since the philosophy of the SON emphasizes caring for self as essential for nurses, the labyrinth is used for teaching and maintaining self care for students and faculty, and for research, and is open to the community.
