The NA Internship Program
***Requires completion of the Footcare Nail Technician OR NA Medical Nail Tech Certification as a prerequisite.***
This program is a 40-hour proctored internship working in a medical setting under the supervision of a Certified Foot Care Nurse (CFCN®), a physician or podatrist who performs foot care. This internship is intended to give a nail technician who desires a career change the opportunity to experience working in a medical office, clinic, hospital or other venue such as an assisted living facility. The NA MNT’s role would be providing cosmetic services under state license that are also defined as Routine Foot Care by Medicare: trimming the nails, thinning thickened nails, reducing calluses and applying moisturizer.
This module is designed to guide the nail technician in what the expectations should be working in the professional setting of a medical practice. Information is given to help the NA MNT obtain an internship, learn how to foster referral relationships with medical providers and a basic vocabulary for working in the medical field.
A Skills Log is provided to direct the nail tech’s learning. A Preceptor’s Manual is also provided to the CFCN® or physician to communicate the goals and intents of the training they will be overseeing.
The price of the Internship Module is included in the NA MNT bundle, but is also available separately–FNTs may elect to take the Internship program if they choose to add the MNT credential.

This program is comprehensive in its approach to providing essential information to nail technicians entering the medical pedicure industry. It sets the Gold standard for client and salon safety with its strong emphasis on sterilization and sanitation practices. The online modules, study guides and marketing tools made this a 'MUST HAVE' addition to my continuing education requirements. I am now well prepared to meet the needs of the growing medically compromised clients in my community.
Thank you, Chantelle, so very much for your high praise. We are so proud of your accomplishments! Best wishes!
