In 1885, Nusbaum began teaching school in Marion County, Kansas. He was ordained a Methodist minister in 1886, and pastored in Douglass, Goddard, Wichita, and Kingman, Kansas. He went on to serve as educational secretary at Southwestern College in Winfield, Kansas (1895-97); pastor at Ottawa, Kansas (1897-1903); presiding elder of the Independent District (1903-07); and pastor at Parsons, Kansas (1908-14). In 1914, the Methodist Conference appointed him as an evangelist. During World War I, he served as an American Red Cross inspector in France, holding the rank of U.S. Army captain. After the war, he often spoke on the Redpath Lyceum circuit, and held evangelistic meetings in Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas. Southwestern College conferred a DD degree upon him. In his latter years, he served small Kansas churches, and was a supply preacher at Lost Springs and Antelope.
