I think the easiest way to differentiate between nu and velocity would to just memorize all of the ways that one of the two can be applied in chemistry. So far, I think we've only seen velocity used to calculate momentum for De Broglie's Wave Equation. As we move through the quarter it might be a good idea to note down any other application of velocity to avoid confusion.
The "v" for frequency isn't really a v but a greek letter, so I think of it more like a 'wavy' v and try to make it clear in my work. It's also helpful to know which equations use frequency and which use velocity off the top of your head.
