Basically what the question asked above. I've been through three stores and the closest I came was a Pass and Seymour switch/outlet combo with a snap in LED light, but it wasn't a GFCI. I'm hoping to avoid putting in a new box in this bathroom if I can avoid it (plaster wall, PITA to work with). I know that asking for brand suggestions isn't cool, but some ideas of places to look or a definitive yes or no would be awesome.

Depending on how the circuit is laid out, you can put the GFCI upstream to cover this outlet. You can likely find LED lights with a pass-through plug. – BMitch Jun 26 '12 at 1:59
Right now we're using Legrand LED duplex outlets in our other wet rooms. Sadly this bathroom only has space for a single switch/outlet combo, and I'd really like to get a nightlight in there (its an especially dark portion of the house). – Matthew Jun 26 '12 at 2:06
Agree with @BMitch -- a GFCI breaker comes to mind as a good option. – gregmac Jun 26 '12 at 15:45

I have not seen a device with all three items at once. (Gfi/switch/night light) Pass & Seymore does make great sw/lite or lighted gfi recpts. Is there any possibility you can expand the single gang box to a two gang box? If you expand it you could use one lighted device and a normal devise, problem solved.

The one issue we're running into is that the wall is plaster and very prone to flaking/cracking apart so I'm concerned about doing it right now. Also, it is in a small area, and I'm not sure that there is a way to extend out to a two gang box and still have the installation look "nice." So I was hoping for an all in one unit. I know Pass and Seymour has one of their trademaster boxes with a snap-in light but as I said it's not gfci :( – Matthew Jun 26 '12 at 14:26
