I have been runiing with a 2nd gen Nano and Nike+ for 5 years. I recently upgraded to a 6th gen Nano and had experienced the same annoying problem - lots of playlist, no way to shuffle. The solution I figured out:
First select the playlist you want to run to in the Music icon and play with the shuffle icon
Then flip to the Fitness/Nike+ icon, (playlist should be playing/shuffling), set up your run and use "Now Playing" for your playlist.
Not the most elegant way, but it works.

Glad it helped. As I said, not tthe best way, but it works. On my old Gen-2 Nano, you could select "shuffle songs" in the settings menu, and all your playlists would shuffle. Now, it's not an option in the settings, and I would say that it is not likely to return, since this option is lacking when playing music and using nike+ on an iphone with iOS, and the new Nanos are sort of mini iOS devices now.

Thanks for the advice, I was trying to puzzle out how to do this. I notice that after you've used O\'sdad's trick once, if you go to "My Workouts" in Nike+ you see the option listed there, so can choose it directly straight off e.g. it'll be listed as "Basic Workout Now Playing".
