Without any screenshot it is difficult to tell what's going on. Here are some tips:

You don't have the shader panel visible:

You can split any area and choose what kind of editor to show. You can create a new Workspace based on templates (click on the + button next to the top tabs and choose General > Shading.

You don't have any nodes

Select your mesh and click on the New button from the Shader Editor. It's also possible that there are some nodes but are not in the actual view. So move the mouse on the Shader Editor, select all nodes by pressing A and press dot key NumPad . to center the view on selected nodes (otherwise you can zoom out till you see something)
