Is there a way that I can still qualify to take NCLEX?

I graduated vocational nursing in 2013. I took the NCLEX twice and failed both times. I was 18 years old at the time and felt that my failure was proof that I was inadequate to be a nurse. After failing, I joined the work force and got an associates in a different degree. This degree is not yielding job opportunities like I need it to.

I am a new mother to a beautiful little girl. As such, I need to be able to properly take care of my little one. I want to give her the best life that I can....I'm sure all mothers and fathers can relate to this. Nursing would be the best way for me to be able to provide for her. 

I passed the vocational nursing program and received my certification. My certification is in Texas. Is there anyway that I can still qualify to take the NCLEX and try to get my license? Could I test in another state, possibly? Has anyone else been in this position?  

Any help would really be appreciated! 

Thank you so much for your time!

TL;DR: Got my VN Certification in 2013 (Texas), but I haven't acquired my license. How can I qualify to take the NCLEX Exam? Has anyone been in this position?

Im from California so it might be different. I had graduated in 2010 and failed the NCLEX and got discouraged. I decided to try again in 2017 unsure and called the nursing board to ask about my situation and they said here it doesn’t matter how long since I graduated I just had to send my transcripts again, pay the registration fee and take the test. I studied my butt of on my own and passed! I’m now working and going back for my RN! So cal the nursing board in your state and find out! Don’t give up
