Renaming one of the choices without screwing up the rest of the list?

Nintex wizards, I probably have an easy challenge for you. I have a list with 2000+ items. The list has a choice field, and I want to update the verbiage of one of the choices.

 

However, if I do that in the list settings, all the existing list items that have that choice will have the "old" version of the choice, and if anyone tried to edit an unrelated field in those items, they wouldn't be able to save it unless they ALSO changed the "old" version of that field to the new.

 

I need a (hopefully simple way) to make this change for all items - I'm assuming it's going to involve something silly like a workflow that will run in a loop on all items, and a "run if" that will look for the old value, remove it and add the new value. 

 

Is there an easier way to do this?
