i have a term paper on the impact of specialties to nursing. i'm having difficulties getting journals and articles on my topic. any ideas would really. by impact, i mean both positive and negative.
The impact of specialties or specialty organizations? Because as you are describing it - I don't see the point.
You need to define specialties. That term by itself is meaningless. Once you get that figured out, you'll be able to find articles.

Not sure exactly what specialties you are looking for. If you had a more definitive descripton of what you mean by specialties it might be easier to find articles. But, I still did a quick search and here's what I found:
The Relationship Between Nursing Certification and Patient Outcomes A Review of the Literature
The Impact of Specialty Practice Nursing Care on Health-Related Quality of Life in Persons with Ostomies
Nursing Specialty Certification and Patient Outcomes: What We Know in Acute Care Hospitals and Future Directions
Nursing Specialty Certification and Patient Outcomes: What We Know in Acute Care Hospitals and Future Directions - ScienceDirect
A Position Statement on the Impact of Neuroscience Nursing on Quality of Care and Health Outcomes
American Board of Nursing Specialties: Credentialing Research
I haven't read any of these and some aren't articles but they point to impact of nursing specialties - with no description of what specialty it's the best I could do! Hope it helps some! Good luck!
