Battymom- I am actually in my second semester at Jeff State at the Shelby campus. I have (MODERATOR EDIT OF NAME - PLEASE DO NOT POST NAMES OF ANYONE IN YOUR PROGRAM PER TOS) for peds. Is that who you happened to have? If you had her, Any tips on her tests would be WONDERUL! . She doesn't really lecture as much as she rants and tells us stories all about pediatrics. I don't feel I learn anything in that class and when you ask her questions she just refers you back to the stupid objectives which are so vague and not in the least bit specific! I understand Peds is very tough though!
Regarding UAB. I actually applied for this coming fall 2012 but didn't get in. I was afraid I failed Fundamentals but ended up making a 77 overall (whew) so I applied in the event I failed. I hear it is a little easier to get admitted in Spring than in Fall. Fall is dedicated to the Nursing scholars so 75-85 chairs are reserved for them leaving about 50-60 chairs left out of 250 applicants. Insane! Depending on Spring applicants one of the advisors also told me they give first dibs to UAB students who did pre-reqs there.
