Yes. If they're brom B&N, they're stored in their cloud, and they should just load onto you NC. If they're sideloaded, you would just repeat the process & sideload them one the NC.

I had no problem with book transfers from N1E to NC (with one tiny exception).
B&N books automatically show up in the NC library once you've registered your new device with B&N. Only the most recent five or six will be fully downloaded onto the device however. All older titles appear with a "download" banner on the bottom of the cover icon and won't be fully downloaded until you initiate an individual book download by tapping on the cover. Even archived book covers appear on a special "archived" shelf in the NC library.
My many sideloaded titles transferred easily, too, using ADE. ADE recognized my new NOOK device and asked me if I wanted to register it. Easy to do with one click. After that, I simply dragged each title from my ADE library onto the NOOK (NC) icon. I think the Calibre process, with a transfer ALL option(?), is even simpler.
Here's the tiny exception to book transfers from N1E to NC: PDB titles are not recognized by the NC. I had only three titles on my N1E which were PDB format, so this was not a big deal for me. Since B&N originally sold both PDB and ePUB formats for N1E, you may find some older purchases which will not transfer to your NC. It might be possible to archive a PDB title purchased from B&N and redownload it as ePUB??? (MY PDB's were from Fictionwise--a B&N company --and so I was out of luck.)
