Over 25 days

I note that the Spanish nurse who has contracted Ebola got it from treating Father Miguel Pajares, who was reported dead on the 12th of August. Therefore, one can assume that 25 or more days passed since she was exposed.

Incubation is said to be no more than 21 days. 

UPDATE: Belay all that.

Well then: JP Gibb in the comments points out that she had treated another priest since the death of Father Pajeares, 

I swear, when I looked this up this morning trying to get the dates there was no mention of the second priest. However Father Manuel Garcia Viejo is also mentioned here.  He died 12 days ago which puts this well within the 21 day incubation period. 

Oh well. Thanks JP Gibb!

1 I don't think that's who she got it from.

The nurse was part of a team attending to missionary Manuel García Viejo, 69, who died four days after being brought to Carlos III hospital on 20 September.

Unless there's more than one Spanish nurse with Ebola...
