The lifetimes of some excited levels for singly ionized nitrogen are calculated by using the weakest bound electron potential model theory and quantum defect orbital theory. We determined expectation values of radii using numerical nonrelativistic Hartree-Fock wave functions. The necessary energy values have been taken from NIST. The present results have been compared with previous calculations and experiments. Most of the lifetime results are presented for the first time in the present work. For N II, because there are few lifetime results available in the literature, the present study compared to existing investigations, provides detailed results for the lifetimes of several of the excited 2s22p ns, 2s22p np, and 2s22pd → 2s22p 2 where, n = 3-6 for the ns series, n = 3-5 for the nd series and n = 3-4 for the np series.
