I’m a Navy Nukeling. Separating from Navy as an ET. Searching for careers other than the typical power plant with rotating shifts. I’m a single mother and I need to be home with my girls at night. Working on my bachelors currently to better my career options.  I’m fairly health conscious and sleep is important. Working the night shift and performing rotating shift work is not something i want to do. What careers exist for ppl in my situation? Any regular hour jobs for nukes? Am i searching for a unicorn at the end of a rainbow?!

You can go with I&C, Instrumentation and Controls. Commercial Nukes and Non-Nuke gen stations all have I&C people who do not typically rotate

Electronic controls (I&C) are everywhere from power production, manufacturing to casinos.
Do not limit your focus to a dying industry (nuke is dying, nobody is comfortable admitting it yet) and look at a more general skillset - electrical engineering, grid stability, optonics (lasers!!) etc.
Just cuz Uncle Sam's Yacht Club trained you in one area...  ;) 8)
Remember who you love. Remember what is sacred. Remember what is true.
Remember that you will die, and that this day is a gift. Remember how you wish to live, may the blessing of the Lord be with you

I work at a Nuclear facility and its a option. You would have no seniority so you would not get to choose. There are people who work shift wnd then there are people who work days. You could probably work and get days at a nuclear facility

Apart from making me chuckle with the "Uncle Sam's Yacht Club," you're absolutely right with the advice to broaden the horizons a bit. That never hurt anyone.

First things first.  Since you may not want to work a nuclear plant which are in limited locations, you need to decide where to live in your new life.  Florida is not California, nor is Montana New York City.  Where do you want to live?

It is dead, we are merely the eulogy

No, you are the grim reaper. (I had typed something else but I am trying to play nice.)

Dead would mean finished, over, no longer producing electricity. For a while it was vibrant, then stagnant, and now declining. If something doesn't happen soon, it will be dying... but in the words of a plague victim in my favorite movie,  "Wait... I'm not dead yet!"
"I won't eat anything that has intelligent life, but I'd gladly eat a network executive or a politician."

                                  -Marty Feldman

"Politics is supposed to be the second-oldest profession. I have come to understand that it bears a very close resemblance to the first."
                                  -Ronald Reagan

I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: 'O Lord, make my enemies ridiculous.' And God granted it.

                                  - Voltaire

I thought it was dying?  now it's dead again?  oh so now dead means the same thing as dying?   interesting.  You change the meanings of words almost as much as you change your username.
