JRT nips at our baby

We have a 3 yr old JRT named Shelby. We have had her since 6 wks old. My wife and I had a baby girl that is now 10 mos old. About 3 months after the baby was born Shelby was diagnosed with Addisons disease. She does fine on her medication but now that the baby is crawling around Shelby seems scared of her and has nipped at her twice but did not touch her. She just kind of growled and ran away. She also tries to attack other dogs, mostly smaller ones. Our vet recommended obedience training. Does this sound like a good idea or should we get rid of her?
