The fan switch doesnt need be GFCI.. only the receptacle itself. Just place the fan, and bathroom light switch in a double nail-in plastic nm box that will take care of both switches in a separate box from the GFCI Receptacle. Here where im at.. its allowed by code. Passing inspection without a problem.
NOW::: Depending on how the current wiring format was before you disable them.. depending on how you will wire the two switch in place(as two separate switches still in the same dbl box).
