Bathroom receptacle

Hey all,

I need[would like] to add a GFI rec. in my bathroom and run it off of the bathroom light\fan in the ceiling.Can I do this? If so, how would I hook the GFI up so that it has constant power even when the light\fan is off?? I think I know what to do,but I thought I'd better be safe on this.
Thanks in advance for any help with this.

A) There is a 90% chance you CANNOT pull an unswitched feed from the fan/light. It is simply unlikely that there is one present.

B) You CANNOT install a GFI receptacle fed from a lighting circuit. This is code.
There are certain instances that you can in new construction, but this is not one of them.

I would suggest pulling a new circuit from the panel. You'll be better served this way anyway.
