Hoegel, 41, has already spent almost a decade in prison for other patient deaths, and is accused of intentionally administering medical overdoses to victims so he could bring them back to life at the last moment.
Niels Hoegel made the admission on the opening day of his trial in the city of Oldenburg.
The 41-year-old Hoegel (Högel) confessed to the crimes on the first day of his trial, which took place on October 30 in Germany's northwestern city of Oldenburg.
Prosecutors said Hoegel should have been aware that the drugs he gave to patients at hospitals in Delmenhorst and Oldenburg could cause life-threatening cardiac problems.
The Agency notes that if Hegel is found guilty in the murder of 100 people, it will become one of the most brutal serial killers in post-war Germany.
Authorities subsequently investigated hundreds of deaths, exhuming bodies of former patients.
Investigators say that he may have killed even more.
He promised Hoegel a fair trial.
An additional conviction could affect Hoegel's possibility of parole, but there are no consecutive sentences in Germany.

It said paramedics who retrieved the bodies on the Gazan side of the fence confirmed that the children did not have weapons. The incident occurred with tensions high along the border after months of protests and clashes.
Hoegel said he had kept quiet "out of shame" and because it had taken him a long time to realise the full scope of what he had done.
The patient survived and in 2008, Hoegel was sentenced to seven and a half years for attempted murder for that case, according to BNO News.
The German nurse has already spent almost a decade in prison for other patient deaths.
Hoegel was caught red-handed injecting unauthorized drugs into a patient in 2005 but no one at the hospital intervened.
"We want him to get the sentence that he deserves", said Frank Brinkers, whose father died in an overdose allegedly administered by Hoegel.
However, a police investigation concluded that he could have been stopped earlier if the two hospitals had not "failed to report the disturbing increase in fatalities when Högel was working", says Deutsche Welle.
Authorities are pursuing criminal cases against former staff at the two medical facilities.
Prosecutors say he was motivated by vanity, to show off his skills at saving human lives, and by simple "boredom".
