Bathroom Remodel [electrical upgrade]

Hello, I am running a new seperate circuit to a GFCI outlet for a whirlpool tub. I will also be installing a recessed light in a walk in shower stall. Is it acceptable to run the power for the shower light off of the load side of the GFCI outlet and have GFCI protection for the shower light? Or would it be better to run another seperate circuit for the shower light with a GFCI breaker? Any advice would be appreciated!

Any changes to structure requires approval of local building inspector and inspection by local electrical inspector. Please contact your local building codes office.

The tub requires a dedicated circuit, one with nothing else on it.

Run another circuit for the recessed.

Be sure to use a trim plate on that recessed light that is specifically rated for in shower installation.
