Supposing there is an iron nail that is left to rust, if we compare the time it takes to rust with that of a magnetized iron nail, will there be any difference in the time of corrosion (assuming other environmental factors are constant)?

You'll have to keep the iron nail continuously magnetized by keeping it in presence of another magnet(Kind of violates the "same environment" condition). Maybe you would want to consider a steel nail. –  udiboy Jul 27 '13 at 9:56
