No Kush and Nubia are not exactly the same though some people write as though they were.
Nubia is the geographical area south of Egypt (1st cataract / Aswan area)
Kush was a mighty kingdom which arose there in very ancient times (sometimes people say Ancient Nubia instead of ‘the Kingdom of Kush’). Nubia usually means mediaeval Nubia – that is a civilization which came up much later on in roughly the same area
