EASY Code Question for Bathroom

Does a bathroom seiling fan need to be on it's own circuit?
Currently I have:

1-Light Fixture
1-Outlet

I plan to add:
1-Outlet
1-Fan

As long as all of those items are located inside the same bathroom you can use the existing circuit. The receptacle must be GFCI, the fan must be GFCI only if it's located directly over the shower.

Thanks, I plan to change the breaker to a GFCI anyway. We're going to change the service sometime soon.
