In brief: What's the timing?

Nose bleeds during seizures can occur when the associated elevated blood pressure bursts small blood vessels in the nose (not to say also directly striking the nose during seizure).
Persistent nosebleeds after a seizure has ended is distinctly unusual and should investigated as a separate problem.
