Kogan was nominated by her colleague, Ross Mangilog, RN Nurse Manager for her leadership. In his “Salute to Nurses” nomination, Mangilog said, “Being a nursing leader is not an easy task. It’s great to be called a leader but few are actually worthy of this title. Bozhena Kogan, is one of the very few. She started at Hebrew Rehabilitation Center as a naïve new grad nurse and matured into our highly regarded Senior Director of Nursing –Hebrew SeniorLife Rehabilitation Center at our Roslindale campus.”
