You guys are so stupid that say that it has 7!
The energy levels in an atom go 2, 8, 18, 32, 50, 72......but the last energy shell is always 8 unless it is hydrogen or helium, so in nitrogen the shells would be 2, 5!
I am in 8th grade and I knew that

No, Nitrogen has 5 Valence electrons. It is in column VA which mean 5 A... Bahahahah you nerds! I really think it is quite annoying how people put the wrong awnsers on the net! ;) The 7 that all of you think is the answer is actually th "atomic number". Has nothing to do with how many valence electrons it has!

As stated in an earlier reply, 5.

To go further, let me quote Encarta:
"In compounds nitrogen exists in all the valence states between -3 and +5."

I hope that answers your question.
