We will focus on the existence and concentration of nodal solutions to the following critical nonlinear Schrödinger equations in $\Bbb R^2$ $$ -\epsilon^2\triangle u_{\epsilon}+V(x)u_{\epsilon}=K(x) |u_{\epsilon}|^{p-2}u_{\epsilon}e^{\alpha_{0}|u_{\epsilon}| ^{2}},\quad u_{\epsilon}\in H^1(\Bbb R^2), $$ where $p>2$, $\alpha_{0}>0$, $V(x), K(x)>0$, and $\epsilon>0$ is a small constant. For the positive potential $V(x)$ which decays at infinity like $(1+|x|)^{-\alpha}$ with $0 < \alpha \le 2$, we will show that a nodal solution with one positive and one negative peaks exists, and concentrates around local minimum points of the related ground energy function $G(\xi)$ of the Schrödinger equation $ -\triangle u+V(\xi)u=K(\xi) |u|^{p-2}ue^{\alpha_{0}|u|^{2}}$.
