I recall Nissan have had issues with CVT in the past.
Changing out the fluid at 60,000 can't hurt. The one thing I will say is I would have the dealership do the job. Some individuals on this board have done it themselves, but it is an involved process that the dealership is better equipped to handle.
Nissans regular maintenance plan does not seem to address changing out the CVT fluid. The Optional Premium Upgrade shows as follows:
