Durock outside corner


I am getting ready to put tile around my shower. This is new work and the tile will be going over Durock. The width of the bathroom is more than the length of the bathtub, due to where the rough in plumbing was put in. So, at the rear of my bathtub I have an outside corner and then a 20 inch wall to the next inside corner for the back wall of the bathroom. At that outside corner where the Durock meets the drywall I plan to use a steel drywall corner bead, mud the drywall side and just attach the Durock side then tile up to the corner and was wondering if there is a better way?

You have an outside corner---one side drywall--the other side tile(durrock)

Use a metal or plastic corner bead there---keep it tight to the durrock or the tile will be raised---
