ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the efforts of nuclear power industry groups to provide educational programs for future employees in the U.S., as the industry faces a decline in skilled workforce as of June 2011. It mentions the Nuclear Uniform Curriculum Program (NUCP) created by the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) and the Institute of Nuclear Power Operations (INPO) to develop Associate's degree programs. A mentoring program for young women in high school has also been established by the Nuclear Power Institute (NPI) with the South Texas Project.
