I think that is not a separate package, it is installed when you install the driver - just run it from a shell.

[EDIT]
I just started my only system with Nvidia driver and verified, nvidia-settings is installed along with the driver.

As the normal user simply open a terminal and run nvidia-settings. It will create a config file in the user's home directory (i.e., settings are per-user).

Also you should get an icon under the Settings section of whatever window manager menu you use as a direct way to launch it.
