GFCI for bathrooom fan/heater/light?

I'll be installing a fan/heater/light boxes in the ceiling of my bathroom. This will be on it's own circuit. Does this need to be GFCI protected? ...or does that rule only apply to outlets in bathrooms.

Thanks

The rule applies to receptacles and a fan only if it is mounted over the tub/shower.

The fan will be on the ceiling next to the tub (maybe a couple feet away) but not directly over it.
No GFCI necessary?
