How do I transfer iTunes playlists to my iPod nano 7th generation

I just received a new iPod nano 7th generation and want to transfer my playlists in iTunes to the nano.  I have been unable to find instructions for this in the manual or online.  Can you help???

Select it in the iTunes sidebar, click on its name, and type a new name. If you're using iTunes 11, choose to show the sidebar from the View menu.
