Rebecca Towne Nurse (3 March 1621 – 29 July 1692) was a woman executed during the Salem witch trials.

Although Nurse was pious and popular among many in Salem, she had a lengthy feud with the Putnam family and was against the appointment of Samuel Parris as the village minister. She was brought to trial for witchcraft on 30 June 1692, with the Putnams as the main accusers. The original verdict found her not guilty, but several girls supposedly afflicted by witchcraft ardently protested, causing the jury to reconsider and return a guilty verdict. On 29 July, Nurse was hanged along with Elizabeth Howe, Sarah Wildes, Susannah Martin and Sarah Good.
