I just bought a ceiling fan today with a light package on it.( including a night light) The night light says it has to be wired up as a three way switch, but I've only got a single switch/plug outlet to work with. Do I need a new hot for this? Why can't this be wired to operate from the same switch?

They don't want the night light operating at the same time as the regular light. Hence, the requirement for a 3-way switch, so the loads are non-coincidental.
