adding new circuit for new bath

Hello all,
I am adding a small bath that has one(ground fault) recep.,one fan/light, and one light over the vanity. I am adding one new 20 amp. single pole breaker for this bath. My question, when I run the 12/2 wire from the panel to the bath should I (hit) the ground fault recp. and come off of it to the light switch which will operate the fan,light ,and the light over the vanity. Any comments would be greatly appreciated... john

The GFCI protection for the fan and lights is optional. My preference is to not have GFCI protection for the lights in the event that it trips you will be in the dark in a slippery environment.

GFCI is only required for the fan if it is located directly over the shower stall.
