    Unfortunately, if he is already into heroin and other heavy drugs, giving him further access will just feed his disease. Some people do CHOOSE nursing as an option to feed their addiction. Is it your place to intervene? Possibly, if he truly wants to be a nurse for the pure reward that the career can provide. Is it fair that he may be impaired to care for patients as a student, and under the nursing school liability? He needs to be referred to see a counselor, and given an option that we have all been given. the chance to recover and live a full productive life in sobriety. The worst thing you could do is nothing, because he will eventually fall, and it would be awful if a patient was placed in his care and something detrimental happened.
