In brief: Immediately
There are no contraindications to visiting a person with a pacemaker after you had a nuclear stress test.
You can visit them anytime as the radiation does not effect the pacemaker.

In brief: No delay necessary
When you are released from the clinic, you have been determined to be safe to be around other people, so you can visit them immediately when you are sent home after the test.
