I'm easily wounded myself (feelings)
I haven't had a bad experience yet, working as or talking with a WOCN, or WCC. This seems to be a personality type that is into teaching and learning. I haven't seen on the WOCN Specialty site any heated exchanges that question credentials, or suggest the other person may not be "as good as, as smart as..."
I have run into some jealousy or maybe territorial behavior from floor nurses and CNA's. Mostly it's the "but we've always used such and such a product and it works just fine, or with Home Care family members wanting to use "Aunt Lucy who's a Nurse's" Bourbon soaked wet to dry dressings (kidding) on that stage 4 sacral ulcer.
That kind of stuff usually works out with persuading them to humor you, and try the new technique for 2 weeks then re-evaluate, also backing up with articles, n stuff. That and I make a practice of checking in with the ones who seem interested and on board with the new approach and especially the ones who are not so sure of the new treatment approach.
So really it's kind of fun, not mean spirited stuff like people trying to get you in trouble.
The one thing I've noticed from this site, is to be aware of how many people are watching you! They are looking to WOCN's to really know their subject and to utilize excellent technique. So act as if your Nursing instructor is watching you!
