How to Locate and Wire a Bathroom Light Switch

Light Switch Access for a Bathroom

Electrical Question: In new home construction what is the code for locating a light switch in a small half bathroom? I was always under the impression that it would be against code to require someone to enter an enclosed dark bathroom to access the light switch. Doesn’t the light switch have to be on the outside of the room or just inside the room within arms length?
Thanks for your time.
