If you choose an herbicide, this article will give you some options:

What you would want is a post-emergence herbicide that targets broadleaf plants (plants other than grasses and their relatives) since these would kill the nettle plants but not the surrounding grass. This information and instructions for use will be listed on the label.

These articles describe some organic options. Pouring boiling water on the nettles is a recommended way to kill them.
