The NCA Internship Program
***Requires completion of the Footcare Nail Technician OR NCA Medical Nail Tech Certification as a prerequisite.***
This course will assist you in obtaining and completing a proctored Internship working in a medical setting under the supervision of a Certified Foot Care Nurse (CFCN®), a physician or podiatrist 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 NCA 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. There are several informative video presentations you will want to view prior to starting the Internship. Information is given to help the NCA 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 for you to download and give 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 NCA 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!
