It doesn't work this way. You have to read about in your textbook and then come back if you don't understand something.

I always thought the p orbital had a node at the nucleus.

I thought every orbital had a node at the nucleus? Heisenberg?

Not s orbitals. A node is where the wave equation changes sign. When you have 1 node, you have at least 2 lobes.
