We present nucleosynthesis results form calculations that follow the evolution of massive stars from their birth on the main sequence through their explosion as supernovae. Our simulations include all relevant isotopes and reaction rates up to bismuth. These are the first calculations to follow self-consistently in a complete massive star model the heavy s-process, p-process (gamma-process), and nu-process. We discuss where in the star the heavy p-process and nu-process are made. We show the first calculations of the charged and neutral current nu-process including a two particle cascade for the production of La-138 and Ta-180 in complete stellar models.
