1 "Know your 'healer.'"
2 Learn about "Nesting."

Trying out the various ship types and have just started in on healers. I've seen other healers getting huge rewards and even healers making lots of kills and asssists.
I spend all game healing and get little reward, and have no chance of actually engaging ships to kill them, unless a small corvette comes after me.
So how are people getting this huge rewards and kills ?
1) Know the Ships.
The 'Best Allround' use ships for General Use TCs as 'Healers' are in large part agreed to be teh Oberon group, with the power to Heal and Harm alike with their main beams. (good idea to keep the Auto-Repair beams)
If you want to go Full Offense while adding aid, the Jupiter Arms group have very good Main Gun beams from a distance that can be fun to use. Just set up a pair of Repair Pods from about 5km back near some cover and laugh as you burn em down... at tier 3. (Self Repair and Blast Pulse with Beam Amp or Tesla both good) At 4+, opens up.
For a Pure Healer role, the Vector-Tader is at tier 4 after the Dola can do a lot to survive as it aid allies.
(Purge Beam is a good idea with Machine Guns for offense, and going with max Energy is not a bad idea)
2) Know about Nesting.
There are a few points on each map you can "Nest" under or next to in helping of your Allies that foes cannot easily get to you from and you can run from for more cover.
These places are up next to walls and have where you can move around to the other side of a place of cover along with moving down from the ledge if are getting shot at.
(Basically hug up near to curved walls and buildings with lots of cover that can protect you)
Just also remember to keep your camera on the Swivel for Low HP allies, with your Sensitivity up to about 2200 to 2600 dpi for your mouse for Control & Speed.
(and to not go chasing after dumb allies that run from the team, you'll just die too)
You SHOULD be able as a well nested healer to get a LOT of EXP on Elimination games along with Team Deathmatch some games where people like to Camp Up against the enemy team for long times.
