School Nurse of Year

Claudia Martinez-Plambeck, the lead nurse of Long Beach Unified School District’s Student Health Services, has won the School Nurse of the Year Award from the Long Beach School Nurses Association.

She is described by colleagues as patient, compassionate, thorough, kind and committed to school nursing.

Martinez-Plambeck has served as a school nurse for six years and has been a board member for the Long Beach School Nurses Association for five years. She has also served as a secretary for the organization. 

During her time at LBUSD, she has created newsletters, provided trainings and shared her vast knowledge and expertise with numerous school nurses.

“She took on a new position as the lead nurse for Student Health Services this school year,” shared Ana Speedone, a nurse at Bixby, Gant and Cleveland elementary schools and last year’s award recipient. “Although it has been a challenging year, she has persevered and outshone as a lead nurse.”
