In brief: Knowledge

Barring any incidents that damage the integrity of the facility such as that which happened in japan you should have little to worry about.
Checking air quality in the area and looking for radiation levels through your local government should help set your mind at ease. It might not hurt to have some potassium iodide tablets available in the event of an incident.

You probably don't have to do anything. Driving in your car is probably more dangerous than working near a nuclear plant.
