It is still possible to obtain the pre-app Nook software via the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine.

It still works for accessing Nook ePubs, and autiomatically downloads them.

Unfortunately, ePubor's commenting system considers a link to the Wayback Machine to be spam, so I cannot post the link here.

The last backup I found was from February 11, 2012, so searching the Wayback Machine using the Barnes & Noble/Nook URL, and going to that date, and searching for the page with links to the Nook software should do the job.
