Nieremberg taught humanities, natural history, and scripture at the Colegio Imperial in Madrid. Additionally, he authored about eighty separate works, mostly about religion and philosophy. His Historia naturae, which focuses largely on the natural history of Mexico, was compiled primarily from research conducted in New Spain in the 1570s by the Spanish physician naturalist Francisco Herndez (1515–1587).
