The nurse’s role in Juliet’s life makes her see things at their worst and their best, being there when Juliet was most vulnerable helps her make rational decisions on her behalf. For instance, while acknowledging that Juliet’s love for Romeo makes her blind, she describes him at his best and his worst, not biased in view of Juliet’s feelings. "...well you have made a simple choice. you know not how to choose a man, Romeo! No, not he. though his face is better than any man's, yet his leg excels all men's, and for a hand a foot and a body, - though, they be not the talked on yet they are past compare..." (Shakespeare 2. 5. 37-40). When Juliet’s mother wants to talk to Juliet about marriage, she invites the nurse to stay and participate in the conversation “although the nurse is initially dismissed, Lady Capulet immediately recalls her, since she is Juliet’s trusted advisor- and Lady Capulet’s intended dissension of Juliet’s marriage prospects, now that she is nearly 14 years of age, is far too important the nurse to be excluded” (Bloom 17, 18). Lady Capulet’s does this while acknowledging that the nurse knew Juliet well enough “…thou know’st my daughters’ of a pretty age” (1.3.10). ...

The Nurse plays the role of a mother to Juliet through her advice on how to make life decisions such as marriage. This is because she understands Juliet not only as a child, but she is also a friend. When Juliet is preparing to take the sleep elixir, her mother comes to bid her goodnight, her speech is full of meaning and emotion "…so please you let me be left alone..." even in the formal tone she tries to maintain (Shakespeare 4. 3. 9). Pearce argues that her mother does not recognize the emotions or meanings in Juliet’s speeches further emphasizing how distant mother and daughter are from each other (179-180). He states that “...Juliet has such power over language that she can speak the truth while telling her mother what she wants to hear (179). While referring to Juliet’s skill in language, he brings out the point of mother daughter misunderstanding. In analysing the dialogue between Juliet and her mother after the murder of Tybalt, he points out the misunderstanding. Pierce (180) states, “…Lady Capulet thinks that Juliet refers to hands extended in violence while Juliet refers to hands extended in love”. The Nurse is Juliet’s co-conspirator as Juliet entrusts her with her secret plans, and she helps her to carry them out. Juliet confesses her love for Romeo to her Nurse and informs her of her intentions to marry Romeo. Seeing as she is the daughter of the master of the house restricts her to carry out such arrangements on her own, she requests her nurse to arrange the wedding. The nurse conspires with Juliet to unite with Romeo in marriage. "...to Friar Laurence' cell, there stays a husband to make you a wife...." (Shakespeare 2. 5. 69).
