Are we supposed to convert to nm when solving problems using the DeBroglie equation??? or can we just leave our answers in meters?

You should probably convert your answer to nm if you get something like 2.13*10^(-7)m , but, as long as you keep track of your sig figs I don't think you'll get marked down for it.

I would write scientific notation for the problem solving and the answer in its units

You should convert nm to m so that the units cancel with the m in J.
