Hi Kat4419. If your BF is going into the nuke program he will spend 2 years in school (give or take). Both A school and Power school are in Goose Creek, SC and Prototype is in either Goose Creek or Ballston Spa, NY. If you look at the Nuke mom's page check out the discussion forum - read "Your Sailors Schedule Upon Arrival to GC". It explains the different schools, length of time, etc. They usually will get some leave time after A school & Power school grad. Once they get to prototype everything changes....My son just finished up Prototype and graduates next week. If I can answer anything for you, feel free to ask!
