On episode 326 of The Nurse Keith Show nursing and healthcare career podcast, Keith interviews nurse Enneagram expert Janna Thomason, BSN, RN-BC. The Enneagram is a fascinating way to determine and explore your own personality type, so join Janna and Keith as they discuss the concept and practical application of the Enneagram while they evaluate Keith’s results from his own personal Enneagram assessment.
Janna has been a Registered Nurse for 21+ years, and she’s experienced in Trauma/Burn Intensive Care, Critical Care, Post-Anesthesia Care, Nursing Professional Development, and Nursing Informatics. She loves her family (husband + 2 teenagers + Doberman dog), and she enjoys photography and watching Dr. Pimple Popper (she knows that’s gross).
Janna is a Type 2 Helper on the Enneagram. Several years ago she went through many difficult and challenging life events (her dad passed away and her husband was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer). After her husband went through treatment and was declared cancer-free, she took a good look and decided it was time to take care of herself for a change — she was introduced to the Enneagram and it changed her life. The tool of the Enneagram gave Janna a language regarding how she felt and acted her entire life, including when she experienced intense burnout professionally and personally. Since she understands burnout and has lived it, she knows it can be better — and in fact, your life can be greatly improved, too!
As a Certified Realife Process Facilitator and Enneagram coach, Janna works with nurses on their journey to clarity in mid-life and mid-career. She says that it’s an honor to help nurses find a deeper understanding of the lens through which they view and relate to the world.
