The NA Medical Nail Tech-MNT is a cutting edge training program designed and continually updated to train you to work successfully in a medical setting – whether a physician’s office, medical clinic, long-term care facility and many other venues. Your training as a nail technician in providing cosmetic services or Routine Foot Care for clients will be augmented to allow you to safely work with those who have special health considerations. Upon receiving your certification you will have the knowledge and tools you need to provide safe, careful services for all your clients.
***Requires Completion of the ANT Program as a prerequisite and the NA Internship Program to Achieve Certification ***
The NA Internship Certification (purchased separately) is a one-module course that will guide you through obtaining and completing a 40-hour internship working in a medical setting under the supervision of a medical provider. It must be purchased and reviewed before your Internship.
This Certification as an NA Medical Nail Tech training will uniquely qualify you to provide cosmetic services that a medical or podiatric assistant cannot: after performing Routine Foot Care, you will be able to finish the patient’s nails in a pedicure. You will also be able to perform toe nail enhancement services for those with healthy, yet damaged nail plates. In order to take this course, you must have completed the Advanced Nail Technician Program. This course builds upon the foundation laid by the ANT and prepares you further for working within a medical environment.
The NA MNT incorporates an mandatory 40-hour Internship program, where you will seek interning in a medical setting to support your learning and skills. We also recommend this portion of the program to help you determine if this is a career you will choose.
The NA MNT Certification is taken in segments:
Advanced Nail Technician – ANT (10 Modules – Certification earned upon passing exam)
NA Medical Nail Tech – NA MNT (10 Modules)
Nailcare Academy Internship – Internship (1 Module and 40-hour internship)

It was thorough, fresh and pertinent. I'm glad I did the MNT. It even added to my NASP Master Pedicurist information.
We love that you seek education--your clients are so lucky to have you, Rita!
Currently working in the first Safe Salon in my city and the encouragement from the clients and staff is amazing. I am excited about working with in my community with diabetic foot care awareness as my focal point as an MNT.
Shnell, you are filling a much needed role in your community! Congrats to you!
