yes, if the wiring exists for this to be done. You would need a neutral in the switch box. You would pigtail the black off the switched side of the switch.
Sarcasm is my friend
I'm here to learn too, i do mostly commercial/industrial/new construction and this place is a great way to pick up tips on residential from some good electrical minds. Excuse the spelling, my phone has a mind of it's own.
