The actual electricity produced is the same. Nuclear is more expensive than hydro, so I'm not sure there are any advantages to nuclear over hydro....except maybe that hydro is a more limited resource.

Look at a map of power plant installations

and you'll see that hydro is built where there's mountains to provide the elevation difference necessary for hydro power.

So the advantage of nuclear over hydro is you can build nuclear almost anywhere .

The advantages of hydro over nuclear are
there's no steam ,
no huge engineering staff required
no waste products
and the energy for it is free.

A hydro plant is a far more clean quiet and comfortable place to work than any steam plant whether coal gas or nuclear .

that's my thoughts on it.
