I did not ADN then BSn then MSN then DNP then post masters for another specialty and now working on PhD. It is not the path for everyone and some question my sanity, but I just am a glutton for wanting more. I have friends who have their MSN and are happy and excellent NPs. You do you.
The ones who I can't deal with are the insecure ones who bash the DNP degree fro no reason. If its not for you, fine live your best self.
