Welcome to LJs !.

In this sort of construction the fastener’s role is partly to hold the pieces while the glue sets. If there is no end grain on either piece in the joint odds are the glue will be more than enough and so nails would be fine. Otherwise screws are a safer bet, especially if the joint may receive the odd good bump as screws have much more holding power than nails.
