The event in City Hall on the evening of Wednesday 25 May will be attended by nurses who currently work in or have previously worked in hospitals and other health care venues across the city.
The Royal College of Nursing allocated places for guests through a draw process and Lord Mayor Arder Carson assisted RCN Director Janice Smyth to make the final selection.
As well as the Freedom Ceremony on 25 May, an exhibition will open at Belfast City Hall on Tuesday, 24 May highlighting the exemplary work carried out by the nursing profession across the city down through the years.
The motion to grant the Freedom of the City was unanimously agreed by Belfast City Council last December.
