I have been very confused lately between these two and not knowing when to use each😭I know that both nominalise a verb but that’s as far as it gets!

    Don't you mean the difference between の and こと? Both can be followed by a は to mark a grammatical topic, but that's not (directly) related to the choice between the two.

    This question has (unsurprisingly) been asked before. (The answer given even has a few remarks about のは where the addition of は is relevant -- I must say I didn't think of those when I wrote my comment above.)
