Its in the centre of the atom and is where the neutrons and protons are located. The electon shells orbit around the nucleus in the following sequence - 2 in the first shell (nearest the nucleus) 8 in the next and 8 in the next.

The nucleus is found in the centre of an atom, surrounded by the electrons associated with that atom.
