Dick became Nightwing because he grew into his own hero. Since the most creative sort of angst Bat-writers can come up with regarding 'Wingster is his issues with Batdaddy, I'd be willing to bet Batman still took some action that equaled him firing Dick as Robin, and him becoming Nightwing is Dick passive aggressive revenge.
