The Nailcare Academy Internship Program
***Requires completion of the Advanced Nail Technician Program and exam, and the Wellness Nail Technician Program as prerequisites.***
This program is a 40-hour proctored internship working in a medical setting under the supervision of a Certified Foot Care Nurse (CFCN®) or a physician/ podatrist who performs foot care. The internship gives a nail technician who desires a career change the opportunity to experience working in a medical setting.
This module guides the nail technician in what the expectations are in working in the professional setting of a medical practice. For those who do not wish to work in a medical setting, it introduces them to the experiences their clients have when going to a foot care physician. And of course, provides them with another certification (MNT),
This Module also supports the NCA MNT in obtaining an internship, learning how to foster referral relationships with medical providers and provides basic vocabulary for use in working in the medical field. A Procedure Log (formerly a Skills Log. now upgraded) provides direction for the nail tech’s learning and observations. A Preceptor’s Manual provides a physician or the CFCN® information on the goals and intents of the training they will be overseeing.
The Internship Module is included in the NCA MNT Bundle. Upon completion and receipt of the Procedure Log by NCA, the new MNT will receive the NCA MNT downloadable Certificate and can purchase the Pin on the Resource page or can purchase the MNT Packet on the Resource page which will contain a displayable Certificate and the MNT pin.
