Nearby scanning is used to connect to wireless networks, such as your home network or a public access point like what McDonalds or other restaurants use. This cannot be disabled as it is written into your operating system. In cases where you need to preserve battery, you can disable your bluetooth and wi-fi temporarily to prevent the nearby scanning from pulling from the battery.
