adding new bathroom circuit


I'm going to run a new 20A circuit for bathroom GFCIs. I have several questions:

Can I have GFCIs in different bathrooms on the same circuit?

Is it OK to power bathroom lighting and the vent fan on this circuit?

In one one of the bathrooms I have access to an outlet for the adjacent bedroom. I assume it's not code to include this outlet on the bathroom circuit? The outlet is currently fed from the bathroom light/fan, but isn't grounded, so I was thinking of re-wiring that outlet so the bedroom has at least one grounded outlet.

adding new bathroom circuit


Based on 2008 NEC: one 20A circuit for outlets, cannot be used for lighting circuit. That circuit can supply another bathroom but that is not recommended....two hair dryers at once could trip breaker. MUST be GFCI protected.
