Can Light in Bathroom shower stall

Redoing shower stall and thinking of putting in light over the top of the shower for effect and function. Easy enought to come into existing light over sink and run romex over wall the shower. Do I need a special can fixture or anythig "rated" for shower use?

Just trims rated for wet locations, for example Recessed Lighting, Shower - ShopBathroomLighting.com

Any can is acceptable as long as you use a "shower trim" which matches that can and the correct bulb type for that shower trim. They are usually more restrictive like 40W max bulb.

Sorry I said wet location, depending on whether or not it's subject to shower spray will determine the wet or damp location.

I understand some concealed type down-lights are special designed to be used in shower stall.
