Generally speaking, just edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf and change
reference Driver "nv" to Driver "nvidia"
To load the kernel module, type (as root) kldload nvidia
To make it load automatically at startup, edit /boot/loader.conf and add
line nvidia_load="YES"

If you have not installed the kernel source when the system was
originally installed , you can do it now by running sysinstall again or
use csup as another poster said to download it.
