Ok, I've been reading the boards for months and never posted. Figured I could help a few out. Yes, for the record, you can convert Mobi(Amazon) files to Epub(nook) files. And, it's even pretty easy.
1. Download Stanza(it's free).
2. open the Mobi file you want to convert in Stanza.
3. Hit file, export as> choose any format you want(epub is one of many).
4. Here's where it gets a little complicated. Put your new epub file into calibre(also free).
5. From Calibre, put it on your nook.
the file will not come out perfect. there will, possibly(not always), be small errors that are easy to correct, or ignore, if these errors don't bother you.
Hope this helps out those who desire to do this.

Why bother with Stanza? It can't read Kindle (AZW) e-books, just non-DRMed MOBI. You can already convert non-DRMed MOBI to EPUB with Calibre.

true, the only issue I have with Calibre is sometimes the output is not as good as the original. I've found stanza takes care of this issue.

Have you played with the input/output settings? I've converted several books from mobi and prc (same thing) to epub and they came out perfectly. Just make sure the input profile is set to Kindle and output profile to Nook and any professionally made mobis should come out perfect after the conversion. It's nicer because there's a batch convert option.

I tried Calibre, but the output was jumbled (lines of words overlapping) no matter what settings I used. I used this: http://ebook.online-convert.com/convert-to-epub and the formatting stayed just as good as the original.
