Open SP Modal from Nintex Form

I am working on a Nintex Form in Office 365 and want to open a modal window from a link within the form to be able to add documents to a document library. We are doing this because the form has multiple sections and the simple attachments field was not robust enough for our needs. I have the modal working in my site from a SP page, but when I implement the same code within my form I get this error:

Uncaught TypeError: SP.UI.$create_DialogOptions is not a function

I tried adding the SP.js file to my form, but this did not fix it. I'm assuming it's because I'm not actually in SP anymore when I'm in the form so I can't use functions from it.

Here is the javscript I'm running to open the dialog:

//Dialog Opening -- Document Uploads
function OpenDocumentDialog(refID, sectionName, modalTitle) {
var options = SP.UI.$create_DialogOptions(); <-- where my script errors out
options.url = "[mysiteURL]/_layouts/Upload.aspx?List=%7BB18DF216-5909-4DC1-90C6-8F4305C86F90%7D&ideaSect=" + sectionName +"&refID=" + refID;
options.title = modalTitle;
options.dialogReturnValueCallback = Function.createDelegate(null, CloseCallback);

function setAttachmentLinks(isNew, isEdit, currentId)
console.log("Edit mode: start updating button links - modal");
var a = document.getElementById('TitleAttachmentLink');
a.onclick= function() { OpenDocumentDialog(currentId, 'Title', 'New Attachment: Title Section') };

var a2 = document.getElementById('ThemeAttachmentLink');
a2.onclick= function() { OpenDocumentDialog(currentId, 'Theme/Backstory', 'New Attachment: Theme/Backstory Section') };

var a3 = document.getElementById('MechanicAttachmentLink');
a3.onclick= function() { OpenDocumentDialog(currentId, 'Mechanic', 'New Attachment: Mechanic Section') };


I think if I can call/create/access the SP context, this will work. Is this possible?  Thanks!
