I need some help on installing a GFCI in a 40 year old house. The existing bathroom has no plug what-so-ever and I would like to install a GFCI. Can it be wired off of the existing light switch in the bathroom or must it be wired separately back to its own breaker?

It recommended (perhaps even code) to power
a bathroom recptical from it's own 20A circuit.

The newest version of the NEC requires that each bathroom's outlets be on their own dedicated circuit, and that no light fixtures be on the same circuit as the outlets. Run a new circuit from the breaker panel.

Does this new code preclude more than one bathroom's outlets sharing the same circuit? What year's NEC are you calling the "new" one?
