When the problem occurs, does the display on the dash correspond with where the floor shifter is set?
If there's a mismatch there, then it certainly points to the park/neutral switch. Not on Nissan, but I've seen them termed range sensor, mode sensor as well.
They're typically an arch shaped assembly mounted sort of on top of the trans case, connected to the shift linkage and gear selector shaft on the trans.
I'm sure you've checked the Versa FSM here, but just in case: https://nicoclub.com/FSM/Versa/
It does sound like a Neutral Safety Switch issue.
But it could also be that your shifter/ linkage are just off enough in Park to trigger the switch.
If you can push forward on the shifter, or move it to Neutral, then Park with slightly more force than normal, and the car starts,
that could be the shifter mis aligned.
X2 post #4 ...............the shift cable as it gets used can sometimes stretch slightly to no longer have the trans linkage at trans in exact time with the shifter inside car, then problems like that begin to show up. Look further in service manual and there may be a method for resetting the shifter cable to adjust it back in, they generally have to be set when car is built.
