Nuke is more advanced than Fusion right now. BMD may change that. If you look at what BMD has done with Resolve, it wouldn't be unreasonable to expect Fusion to go through many updates quickly and rapidly improve.
Also, Nuke is industrial-level expensive. They have a free version coming out, but it's for non-commercial use only, so it won't solve any business problems.
Nuke also integrates with Mari, Foundry's 3D paint program. This becomes really useful for matte paintings, among other things. BMD is going to need to address that if they want to compete with Nuke.
Until Fusion seeps into the VFX community, Nuke training will be a more valuable skill. If you were starting VFX for your own productions right now, Fusion is a pretty sweet deal.
