In the PHB on page 156 the Wizard says that it's nature skill modifier is INT. But on the actual Character sheet itself the nature skill modifier is WIS.

PHB pg.156

Just wondering which one I am supposed to use. Or is it that the Wizard can choose either or?

If you have the original 4E Core there is a lot, and I mean a lot, of errata. Your best bet is to pick up a copy of the Rules Compendium as it is up-to-date on the errata. It is under the Essentials line and should be pretty easy to find. I think it's only around $14 too. – Sorcerer Blob Jun 6 '11 at 21:51
@Bob: Thanks. That would probably be a good idea. – Curtis Miller Jun 6 '11 at 21:57
I concur with Blob, that book is an amazing reference. It's also small enough to be handy around the gaming table for when you need to look up a quick rule. – Cthos Jun 6 '11 at 22:01
Just bought the book from eBay. 16$ not bad. Thanks for your help! – Curtis Miller Jun 6 '11 at 22:51

It's a typo.

If you have a look at the official Errata, it says the following:

Trained Skills

Page 156: Replace "Nature (Int)" with "Nature (Wis)."

Rules Compendium, p148, lists Nature as a Wisdom-based Skill. Must be an errata in the PHB.
