In the Settings menu, choose "security," and then "Set unlock passcode."
That is for unlocking the nc. I thing the OP is talking about for purchasing books. You need to go to Settings, choose shop, and then choose the option to set the password for purchasing items.

I did just that...went to settings then shop and choose to have a password when purchasing anything however, after I enter my password and hit 'ok' nothing happens.....??? Help please? I keep googling it to find out what to do but I can't find it anywhere, all the sites are showing me are how to have an account with more than one person using the nook....

Tick the "require password for purchases" box.
Be sure the password you enter there is your BN password, too.
Then, go to the shop app and try a free book or story. It should bring up a confirmation dialog that requires your password.
If not, you're probably in need of doing a hard reset.
Or, you could do a fast uninstall and reinstall of the shop - I just discovered that using my hack to remove and reinstall the shop cleared that preference.
No guarantee that would do it, but if you have bookshelves built, it might help.
I would apply the NoShop file, reboot, confirm Shop is goine, then apply the Shop back again and see if the pref was working.

I enter my password and then when I hit "save" or "ok" or whatever the button is, it doesn't do anything, I can only select "cancel". I'm not sure how to uninstall shop, or anything for that matter, I have only had my NC for a week.... :-\

The instructions for doing the NoShop are in the link, but you'd be better off trying the Nook Engineer's hard reset instruction, in the sticky at the top of the page.
