I'm going to be very generic here, and you may have done all of what I'm about to say. First, you have to thoroughly
evaluate and understand why you feel how you feel and know where you are
. You're in nursing school
, right? Use nursing process (yeah, I know, I'm a nurse-nerd). This can be something you do now or you have already done in the past, but it's important.
1) Assess- Where are you know? Where do you want to be? Do you self identify feelings that precipitate anxiety?
2) Diagnose- What is it that you need to start with to get where you want to be?
3) Plan- What are you going to do when you start feeling this anxiety? What happens when you feel overwhelmed and how will you identify and manage that?
4) Intervene- Set up your plan BEFORE it happens
5) Evaluate - Did it work?
I HAVE NOT ANSWERED YOUR QUESTION YET. I know that. But without knowing this, how can you move forward? Now you need to take in all of your resources. Your personal experience is best- take it to the net and find more information. Type into a search engine something like "PTSD Patient Teaching" or "Anxiety Education" or whatever else you can think of.
Lastly remember another key nursing school motto, "Discharge Planning begins at admission". Learn as much as you can about your patient- You'll be able to better tailor the information to them- and be vigilant. It's a lot to ask but it's your professional duty (and I bet it's your personal goal, too). Great luck!
