In this article, we describe some recent progress in understanding nucleation of high Tc superconducting cuprates during epitaxial film growth. A brief review is given of a number of film characterization techniques which can provide useful information to this end. Based on data from some of these techniques a nucleation model is discussed for the RBA2Cu3Oy (R equals Y or rare earth) compound. For growth on TiO2 terminated (100) SrTiO3, our nucleation model suggests a 1:3:3 cation stoichiometry for the c-axis nuclei. Various other substrates are also discussed.
