Electrical "sort of" question

I'm remodeling my shower and today removed the fiberglass shower surround. On the other side of the back wall of the shower is a bedroom, and when the fiberglass back wall was removed I observed the rear of the outlet for that bedroom wall. I'm just concerned that this is a shower wall and even though I will be using cement board and water proofing materials, I just want to know if this is something normal to see? Is it ok that the outlet is in that location?
Thanks
Charlie

Make sure the cable supplying it is secured to the studs, or across the studs via holes set at least halfway into the studs. If that space is less than half way, use no nail plates to prevent your running screws into it inadvertently while putting up your cbu.

I can't edit my last post, but the term should have been no-nail plates, not no nail plates which describes the absence of the plates.
