I got these two codes out of my van, it has been like a four day now. How can I fix it? Can I still drive it at least three more days without worry of damage something? I read that I need to buy OEM parts, because aftermarket does not work well. The dealer is closed for weekend, but I need the van for transportation. Help please!

Test all the fuses in the car using a test light with the key on.

P0031= Oxygen Sensor Heater Control Circuit Low Bank 1 Sensor 1
P0037= Oxygen Sensor Heater Control Circuit Low Bank 1 Sensor 2

Check the fuses and check the wiring harness that leads to the sensors. These codes can be caused by power failure to the heater circuit or an open circuit to ground.
Both of those share the same ground wire and are spliced partway up the harness before they reach connector C111. Check for continuity between the grounds of the sensors and the chassis. No ground = broken wire or bad connector.

Got the Versa figured out yet?

Did you test the fuses as I suggested in the first response?
You got 2 responses and neither of them suggested replacing any sensors.

C111 is in the harness coming from the O2 sensors under the vehicle. Not near the battery. The grounds both break out and are attached at ground point G100 which is on the transmission.
