how do I tie into power before a switch.

Depends on if the incoming power is runing to the light or the switch first.

Kill the breaker first!

This can also be done with a wireless switch. Heath makes one.

Also depends on if the circuit also contains the bathroom receptcle. If it does, then by code you can not tap this circuit to run devices outside the bathroom.

Is there an outlet in the hallway? If so you could tap off of that.
