Aspen University Receives Approval to Open BSN Pre-Licensure Program in Atlanta

Friday, January 21st, 2022

Aspen Group, Inc. ("AGI") (Nasdaq: ASPU), an education technology holding company, today announced that Aspen University received the final required state and board of nursing regulatory approvals for their Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) Pre-Licensure program in Atlanta, Georgia, with permission to commence marketing and begin to enroll first-year pre-requisite students effective immediately.

"Aspen University’s strategic plan is to focus on launching into Tier 1 markets over the next few years, specifically by continuing to grow its footprint in the largest Southern and Western metros. Between 2010 and 2020, the Atlanta metro population grew 15% to 6.1 million,* which was the third fastest-growing metro among the top ten MSAs in the U.S. over that 10-year period. This will now be the largest metropolitan area where we’re offering our BSN Pre-Licensure program, as Atlanta is 26% larger than Phoenix’s population of 4.8 million. We’re targeting to begin our initial (Years 2-3) Nursing Core term in Atlanta in September 2022,” stated Michael Mathews, Aspen Group Chairman and CEO.
